Melinda Lopez’ adaptation of Federico Garcia Lorca’s Yerma opened in Boston at Huntington Theatre Company June 12. The production, helmed by Hartford Stage artistic director Melia Bensussen, is scheduled to run through June 30.
According to production notes, Yerma tells the story of “a young wife [who] 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.”
