Yerma is a humble peasant woman, who longs for a child. In her village all her friends are raising families, but she remains childless. She tries to be light-hearted and believes that she and her husband will soon be blessed with a baby. As long as her condition, or lack of it, is temporary, she endures it and seeks to remedy it! Gradually Yerma's deep love for her husband turns to disbelief and then hate as she discovers he does not want a child. However, her own pride and honour forbid her to take pleasure or revenge with another man. Overcome with desire and frustration Yerma is driven to the ultimate crime of passion....Performers Denise Black (Yerma), Peter Gowan, Oliver Haden, Caominhe Harvey, Anni Domigo, Eileen O'Brien, Helen Kay, Kydia Baksh, Orla Cottingham, Daniella Dessa, Catriona Martin, Laura Richmond, Jill Myers, Darren Mercer.
