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.

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
