Juan Carlos Martel Bayod gives us Federico García Lorca's tragedy of a woman who cannot have childs trapped by social pressure and the desire to be a mother. Stage design by Frederic Amat and music by Raül Refree.

Yerma is the eponymous protagonist of one of Federico García Lorca's most renowned plays. It is a tragic three-act poem that presents the internal conflict within a woman who wants to be a mother, but is childless. She experiences this frustration in an environment in which motherhood is essential for a married woman, whose main roles involve the home and children, and the maternal instinct within her fights against repression and imposed obligation.

Social pressure on women, especially related to motherhood, appearances, and the misfortune of destiny, is a recurring theme in the author's works. And it is present in the three plays that make up the rural trilogy: Bodas de sangre [Blood wedding] (1933),Yerma (1934) and La casa de Bernarda Alba [The House of Bernarda Alba] (1936). These three tragedies combine myth, poetry and reality in three portraits of women who are simultaneously oppressed and liberated.
