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. This volume of new, sparkling translations by Kenneth McLeish contains three plays from the peak of his career, The Girl from Maxim's, She's All Yours (La Main Passe) and A Flea in her Ear (La Puce a L'Oreille), together with an early work, Jailbird (Gibier de potence).
