This selection of plays by Jean Anouilh (1910-87), one of France's best-known dramatists, includes some of his most enduring work: The Rehearsal ("quintessential Anouilh," Herald Tribune); Becket, which focuses on the relationship between Becket and Henry II; and The Orchestra, "A Play Within a Concert," all translated by Jeremy Sams; together with Eurydice, an ironic modern reworking of the myth ("a fascinating piece," Financial Times), translated by Peter Meyer.

Becket: "Witty, intelligent, full of repartee and irreverence ... it can hold an audience spellbound."—Financial Times

The Rehearsal: "Jeremy Sams has translated impeccably."—Observer
