ANOUILH, Jean. Dear Antoine, or, The Love That Failed. Translated by Lucienne Hill. London : Methuen & Co., Ltd., (1971). First Printing. Pp. (6),-102,(2). Small 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine A Methuen Modern Play. "Jean Anouilh's new play, 'Dear Antoine', which was first presented at the 1971 Chichester Festival, shows a group of people summoned to a remote baroque mansion in the Bavarian mountains to hear the reading of the will of a successful playwright, Antoine de Saint Flour. The season is winter, the year is 1913. The men and women who have come together so reluctantly include the playwright's wife, a few friends and several ex-mistresses from different periods of his life. In confronting one another they are uneasily aware that they are confronting different reflections of Antoine's own fascinating and maddening personality." - from the dustjacket.
