Feydeau was the greatest of a great age of French farceurs and the first to enter the modern repertory. Of the more than 40 plays Feydeau wrote, over a third were one-acts. In this volume, Shapiro has selected and translated eight of these one-act plays, among them Feydeau's first and last works. Includes: Ladies' Man · Wooed and Viewed · Romance in A Flat · Fit to Be Tried, or, Stepbrothers in Crime · Mixed Doubles · The Boor Hug · Caught with His Trance Down · Tooth and Consequences, or, Hortense Said: No Skin Off My Ass!
