The Shepherd’s Wife is one of the masterpieces in Slovak drama. The impeccably focused tragedy is a powerful story of a woman, loving mother, who finds herself – to no her fault of hers – in desperate predicament. In between two male worlds she chooses to be faithful to herself. The Shepherd’s Wife by Ivan Stodola continues to raise moral dilemmas and insoluble issues. It is a Slovak “Antique tragedy”. The currency of its theme has the potential to speak to contemporary audiences.
