Mademoiselle Colombe- A Play In Two Acts

£3.99

Product description

The play is set in 19th-century Paris. Julien, a would-be musician, turns up at the theatre where his mother the famous actress and Grande dame Madame Alexandra is playing. Mother and son are estranged, largely because they see life very differently. He detests the theatre; she revels in it. He loathes her way of life and accounts of her sexual exploits; she loves telling tales about her lovers and husbands.

But Julien has a problem. He has been called up for military service, is determined to do his duty, but realises that this will leave his young wife, Colombe, and small baby alone and destitute. Only his mother can help, and she does, taking Colombe into the company. The inevitable happens as Colombe discovers the pleasures of the stage and life ......

French play by Jean Anouilth adapted to English by Louis Kronenberger.
