Fay Weldonin kirjoittama näytelmä, joka pohjautuu Flaubertin romaaniin.

Elämän ja avioliiton tuho aprikoosihilloa syöden.

Weldonin lukeminen repii aina jotain - tässä näytelmässä stereotypian, klassikon ja itsepetoksen. Feministinä tunnettu Weldon vyöryttää syytöksiä ja ymmärtämystä yhtä lailla niin Charlesille kuin Emmallekin, paljastaa yhteiskunnan kaksinaismoralistisuuden vapauttamatta kuitenkaan yksittäisiä henkilöhahmoja vastuusta.

Weldon on sekä kyynikko että realisti, enkä ole koskaan oikei

The story doesn't work when the writer doesn't identify with Madame Bovary like Flaubert did. Why make poor Emma seem even more troubled than she already was?

With her usual brilliance, Weldon manages to adapt Flaubert's novel to the stage.
