This nonverbal production of a classic Czech drama about a woman in a forced marriage who becomes a desperate murderer is an extraordinary contribution not only touching on womens’ issues but also on the domestic tradition of the realistic drama. The story is told without words – but all the more intensely: bottomless abysses of desperation and powerful eruptions of amorous emotions meet, with shocking brutality and profound humanity, all spiced with a good measure of exaggeration.
In 2019, the production was nominated for the award of the theatre magazine Divadelní noviny, and actress Andrea Berecková was a nominee for the Thalia Award.
