Feydeau, First to Last

Feydeau was the greatest of a great age of French farceurs and the first to enter the modern repertory. Of the more than 40 plays Feydeau wrote, over a third were one-acts. In this volume, Shapiro has selected and translated eight of these one-act plays, among them Feydeau's first and last works. Includes: Ladies' Man • Wooed and Viewed • Romance in A Flat • Fit to Be Tried, or, Stepbrothers in Crime • Mixed Doubles • The Boor Hug • Caught with His Trance Down • Tooth and Consequences, or, Hortense Said: “No Skin Off My Ass!”

translated & with an introduction by Norman R. Shapiro
