“Simon Stone’s radical update of Lorca is astonishingly powerful” — The Guardian (UK)

Federico García Lorca‘s 1934 devastating drama is radically reimagined by Australian director and dramatist Simon Stone, who transforms the achingly powerful tale of a provincial Spanish woman’s desperate desire to have a child into a parable of modern life.
