REVIEWS

'Billie Piper delivers a fearless performance as a woman craving motherhood'
'Simon Stone's radical update of Lorca's play is astonishingly powerful'
'Billie Piper gives a performance of devastating emotional force'
'Billie Piper is earth-quaking as Lorca's heroine'
'Billie Piper compellingly redefines the central role, ratcheting from the sexy girl-next-door archetype she expresses so comfortably to a pitch not far short of Medea — another Stone production.'

STORYLINE

This achingly powerful story of a young woman desperate to become a mother expresses the anguish of a society battling to free itself from its past. Simon Stone’s new version re-imagines Lorca’s original for London today.
