About Yerma

Yerma, a young wife, wants nothing more than to have a child and become a devoted mother. As she watches her friends start their families, she begins to question her own value as a woman. Her desperate desire turns into an all-consuming obsession with devastating consequences. Beloved by Boston audiences, Huntington Playwright-in-Residence Melinda Lopez reinvents Lorca’s classic masterpiece, infusing this searing drama with flamenco-inspired music and heart.

Approximate run time: Yerma plays in approximately 1 hour and 25 minutes, with no intermission. Please note: This production includes a smoking pipe effect (100% nicotine free).

Melinda Lopez“I am profoundly grateful to the Huntington for bringing my adaptation of Yerma to the stage. As the Playwright-in-Residence, I have had the opportunity to deepen my craft as a playwright, and also pursue ideas that have haunted me for a long time — such as Yerma! I have always had a deep love for Lorca, and am beyond thrilled to bring my interpretation of his masterpiece to Boston.”— Huntington Playwright-in-Residence Melinda Lopez

Peter DuBois“Melinda Lopez brings such resonance and poetry to Federico García Lorca’s Yerma – hers is the best English translation I’ve read. We are thrilled to bring together two of the Huntington’s most trusted artists, our playwright in residence Melinda Lopez and director Melia Bensussen, to create this new, visceral, and music-infused production of Lorca’s timeless work. Their collaboration promises to lift up the of the essential story of a woman unravelling under the pressures of society, religion, and nature.” — Peter DuBois
