Yerma at the HB Thom Theatre!
The Drama Department at Stellenbosch University is presenting a new production of the classic play Yerma! This exciting production may be seen from 23-25 and 28-31 August, as well as 1 September 2012 every evening at 20:00 at the HB Thom Theatre. The original text was written by the renowned Spanish playwright Federico Garcia Lorca and transalted into Afrikaans by Uys Krige. It is directed by the award-winning Juanita Swanepoel.
The main character in the drama, Yerma, longs with her heart and soul to have a baby and lives in a society that worships fertility. Her tired husband Juan spends most of his time alone on the farm and does not support Yerma, to the detriment of his marriage. This mutual blunting of communication leads to Yerma doubting herself, Juan and even the joy of living.
