Description The presented study focuses on a little-known one-act play Ze života Richarda Sheridana (From the Life of Richard Sheridan) written by a Czech actress, translator and playwright Eliška Pešková. It offers an analysis of the short comedy, traces the texts that inspired Pešková to write the play and ponders upon the thin line between translation and adaptation per se. The study further documents the events following the staging of Ze života Richarda Sheridana in the Prague Provisional Theatre on March 5, 1866 and the scandalous exposure of Pešková’s male pseudonym which led to a wide criticism of the state of the Czech drama theatre.
