Yerma is a play by the Spanish dramatist Federico GarcĂ­a Lorca.

The play tells the story of a childless woman living in rural Spain.
Her desperate desire for motherhood becomes an obsession that eventually drives her to commit a horrific crime.

Because of the time she is living in, she is expected to bear children. When she cannot, she is forced into measures that those in her society would view as extreme.

Yerma: Inyumba is an adaption of the original text, which is performed in four different languages. This piece explores the taboo topics that still affect our society.

It is thought to provoke and challenges the stereotypical views on gender roles and power play.
