Kenneth McLeish's definitive translations of the most successful French dramatist of the Belle EpoqueGeorges 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).

The Girl from Maxim's; She's All Yours; Jailbird


[A] blissfully funny revival ... nicely renamed in peter Meyer's canny translation to indicate how this is also a story of female revenge against the double standard ... hilarious ... a treat
A puckish version by the late Peter Meyer ... this is a farce ... that squares the circle: the action moves like a well-oiled machine while the characters remain thoroughly and hearteningly human
Plenty of lubricious fun to be had ... the joy ... of Peter Meyer's translation ... lies in seeing recognisable human beings driven to a state of exhausted desperation.
Gloriously funny
This gloriously giddy revival of the classic Feydeau farce has real heart ... a dazzlingly complicated plot, that fits together like a spinning Rubik's Cube ... wry asides in Peter Meyer's translation clarify characters' marriages and motivations ... a triumph.
