Drama. Opening in Paris in 1920, Fernand Crommelynck's THE MAGNIFICENT CUCKOLD was instantly acclaimed masterpiece and went on to greater renown in a legendary 1922 Moscow production, directed by Vsevolod Meyerhold. It is a farce unusual for its naturalism and a naturalist play unusual for its rowdy comedic action. Now in a new and accurate and actable translation by Ben Sonnenberg and Amiel Melnick. It centers on the marriage of Bruno and Stella and shows how their marriage falls apart. It a little resembles such great tragi-comedies as Strindberg's Dance of Death, Pirandello's Henry IV and America's own A Streetcar Named Desire.
