YERMA

PRESENTED BY JENET LE LACHEUR
An urgent adaptation of Federico García Lorca's 1934 masterpiece, transposed into the queer kink scene of modern Britain.

Leorna is a twenty-something woman nurturing a burgeoning desire to become pregnant and bear a child. An ambition made difficult by the fact that her partner One vehemently abhors the idea and, as a trans girl, she had the misfortune to be born without a womb.

When her friend Vik casually lets slip that her play partner Marsh is expecting, Leorna’s own desire to have children is brought to the fore and, as cracks start to appear in her relationship, she decides to forgo One’s wishes and undertake a daring experimental procedure, with devastating results.

An urgent new adaptation of Federico García Lorca‘s masterful 1934 meditation on female identity, uncompromisingly transposed into the queer kink scene of modern Britain, and performed by an entirely trans cast.


This production had its first performance at Nottingham Playhouse’s Neville Studio on the 5th November 2021. It starred Jenet Le Lacheur (she/her – Hamlet, Redefining Juliet) as Leorna, Pete MacHale (he/him – Choose or Die, Dear Young Monster) as One, and EM Williams (they/them – As You Like It, Dream) as Vik/Marsh, with dramaturgy by Robbie Bellekom (they/them) and Athena Stevens (she/her). These performances as part of the Omnibus Theatre’s 96 Festival represent its London premiere.

Jenet’s theatre credits as actor and writer include Notes to the Forgotten She-Wolves (Shakespeare’s Globe), Redefining Juliet (RSC/Barbican), Gaigai Tauna: The Snake Man (UK and Channel Island tour) and The Curious Incident of the Frog in My Sightline (ZOO Southside).

Her radio and screen work includes Words and Music, Cinderella and Last Commanders.
