What's On

I watched a National Theatre screening of Yerma at The Watermans Arts Centre in Brentford. This is a cool spot near the river with an Indian restaurant and cinema. Billie Piper and Brendan Cowell put on an outstanding performance of the heartbreaking story of Yerma, set in modern day London. Yerma is Spanish for barren. The story follows a young couple and their struggle to conceive. It shows the pressures placed on young women both directly and indirectly by society. It also addresses the issue of mental health which is sadly under valued even in modern times. Billie Piper and Brendan Cowell were amazing from start to finish.
