About Jenufa

In this tale of love, betrayal, violence, murder and forgiveness set in a tightly knit community, the playwrights Gabriela Preissová (1862–1946) and Timberlake Wertenbaker chart the conflict between life and honour, pride and love.

Její pastorkyňa (Her Stepdaughter) by Gabriela Preissová caused a scandal in Prague where it was first performed in the1890’s. It won a worldwide acclaim as JENUFA, an opera by Leoš Janáček, but has never been seen in Britain as a play.

Multi-Award winning writer Timberlake Wertenbaker’s other plays include: Our Country’s Good, The Love of the Nightingale, Three Birds Alighting on a Field and Credible Witness. For the last 7 years Christopher Sivertsen has been a key member of Song of the Goat Theatre Company, last seen at the Barbican Centre and at the RSC.


"Nothing could have prepared me for this play other than the reputation of Wertenbaker and of Dionisotti. Nothing can be said about this play other than that it is the most powerful and moving drama presented by a skilled and committed cast of actors who evoke a stifling world of unrequited love and oppression"
