SELECTED PLAYS OF ALPHONSE ALLAIS
Translated by Doug Skinner
This collection of his rare theatrical texts includes original translations—never before published in English—of ten monologues, three one-act plays, and twelve shorter dialogues, skits and burlesques drawn from Allais’s columns in such publications as LE CHAT NOIR and L’HYDROPATHE. In addition to Doug Skinner’s fascinating notes on the texts, you’ll find an appendix of scarce photographs from the Paris production of “Le Pauvre Bougre et Le Bon Génie.” This delightful compilation is proto-Dada at its most delicious!
