Is evolution just a theory without foundation? It is a topic that many will have discussed and thought about at school and in our earliest days of education the concept of a historical man may have sparked the imagination.

Warning: R rated for language.

The much applauded and lauded Simon Stone's adaptation of Garcia Lorca's "Yerma" is an insult to Lorca and to anyone with more than a middle school language appreciation. I suggest a category called 'intellectual redneck' drama.
