When Jean Rhys lost a husband she didn't always notice straight away. Married three times, she was all but consumed by drink and self-destruction as her masterpiece Wide Sargasso Sea slowly took shape. The Trial of Jean Rhys portrays her inelegant struggle and looks into the darkness at the heart of one of the twentieth century's most extraordinary writers. Libretto by Eleanor Knight Scenes from this work in progress have appeared as part of the Royal Opera House's Exposure programme.
