"Lopez proves again that she's one of Boston's most important writers." —WBUR

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.
