Life runs through Yerma’s blood. She is married to an honest, kind, hardworking, faithful man. However, she lives a Freudian dilemma, does love exist without any sexual desire? Can her good husband make her happy without wanting her, can he give her an intense and full life?
Yerma lives with a lump in her throat. At the same time, he cannot fully articulate what he wants. Because behind what she manifests there is always more mystery in her.
She needs life, passion, being a woman and a perpetual bitterness lurks in her. Not knowing what she wants is almost as painful as her husband’s sexual indifference: Does she want to be a mother, does she want to be desired, does she want to be fulfilled?
We will never know at all and that is one of the charms and mysteries of this work.
Yerma is a tragic poem in three acts and six paintings, written between 1933 and 1934, refers to an archaic society, installed in a small rural town in Andalusia.
Described by its author as a work without plot, Yerma focuses on the complex internal conflict of its protagonist. In fact, you could say that the rest of the characters are there to evolve this conflict, or to show it from different perspectives. At the heart of this dilemma are Yerma’s desire to be a mother and the impossibility of having children (at least with her husband).
Federico García Lorca’s talent goes even beyond this dilemma.
Every time we read Yerma , a deeper edge of the eagerness to search for ourselves and our insatiable inability to find some form of epiphany is revealed.

“Yerma, the body of tragedy that I have dressed in modern clothes, is, above all, the image of fertility punished to sterility. A soul in which destiny was primed pointing it to the victim of the infertile. I wanted to make, I have done, through the dead line of the infertile, the living poem of fertility. And it is from there, from the contrast of the sterile and the life-giving, that I draw the tragic profile of the work.”

Federico Garcia Lorca

Act One

Table one

As the curtain rises, Yerma is asleep with a sewing tabanque at her feet. The scene has a strange dreamlight. A Shepherd tiptoes, staring at Yerma. He takes a boy dressed in white by the hand.
The clock rings. When the shepherd comes out, the blue light is exchanged for a cheerful spring morning light. Yerma wakes up.


Voice: (Inside.) A la nana, nana, nana,
To nanite we will do
A little hut in the countryside
And we’ll get into it.

Yerma: Juan. You hear me? Juan.

John: I’m going.

Yerma: It’s time.

Juan: Did the yokes pass?

Yerma: They’ve all passed.

John: See you later.

(It’s going out.)

Yerma: Don’t you drink a glass of milk?

John: What for?

Yerma: You work a lot and you don’t have your body to resist the jobs.
