Description - Feydeau Plays by Georges Feydeau
Georges Feydeau (1862-1921), now widely regarded as one of the greatest farce-writers, had a succession of dazzling hits in turn-of-the-century Paris that matched high-speed action and dialogue of break-neck speed with ingenious plotting. Reaching the heights of farcical lunacy, his plays nevertheless contain touches of barbed social comment, and allowed him to mention subjects which would have provoked outrage in the hands of a more serious dramatist. In this first volume of his collected works are early successes such as Pig in a Poke (1888) and The One That Got Away (1892), and examples of his more mature masterpieces, including Heart's Desire Hotel and Sauce for the Goose.
