The Torch Theatre has hosted a number of Live Broadcasts over the past few months, and once again, NT Live delivers as Lorca’s undeniably powerful masterpiece is beautifully interpreted in this Simon Stone production.

The incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) returns in her Evening Standard Best Actress award-winning role; A young woman driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child…


This unmissable theatre phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic and critics call it ‘an extraordinary theatrical triumph’ (The Times) and ‘stunning, searing, unmissable’ (Mail on Sunday).
Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax.
