New World School of the Arts, 25 N.E. 2nd St., will present a play entitled Yerma by Spanish playwright Federico García Lorca on Dec. 6 at 4:30 p.m. in Room 5903. 

There will also be a second showing on Dec. 7 at 1 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. 

The play, which takes place in early 20th century Cuba, explores the dynamics of a woman that must stay loyal to her husband but has feelings toward another man in a culture that stresses gender roles. 

It is meant to illustrate traditional roles and gender norms in society, with a focus on Cuban culture. 

Students of the NWSA theater program will present the play. 

The event is free and open to the public.
