Overview

Kenneth McLeish's definitive translations of the most successful French dramatist of the Belle Epoque


Georges Feydau (1862-1921) was the most successful French dramatist of the belle epoque and is now widely regarded as one of the greatest of farce-writers. His series of dazzling hits matched high-speed action and dialogue 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 more serious dramatists.

This volume of new, sparkling translations by Kenneth McLeish contains two plays from the peak of his career, The Girl from Maxim 's and She's All Yours (La Main Passe), together with an early work, Jailbird (Gibier de potence).
