"An extraordinary tale of betrayal, murder, love and forgiveness, Gabriela Preissova's Jeji pastorkyna (Her Stepdaughter) caused a scandal in Prague where it was first performed in the 1890s. Despite worldwide acclaim as Jenufa, an opera by Leos Janacek, the play has never before been staged in Britain." "Jenufa, adapted by Timberlake Wertenbaker, premiered at the Arcola Theatre, London, in the Natural Perspective Theatre Company's debut production, in October 2007." --Book Jacket.
