Jean Anouilh, the French playwright, was born in Bordeaux on June 23, 1910. He came to prominence as early as 1932 with the success of L'hermine at the Théâtre de l'Oeuvre in Paris, and for the next five decades his name was never absent from the French and international stage. He is the author of more than 40 plays, which he has published thematically as Pièces roses, Pièces noires and Nouvelles pièces noires (including "Antigone", one of his most performed works), Pièces brillantes (including "L'invitation au château", rendered in English as "Ring Round the Moon"), Pièces grinçantes (including "La valse des toréadors") and Nouvelles pièces grinçantes, Pièces costumées, Pièces baroques (including "Cher Antoine" and "Ne réveillez pas Madame"), and Pièces secrètes. Anouilh also wrote translations of Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, and Graham Greene, as well as more than a dozen screenplays, several ballets, and television adaptations. He died suddenly in Lausanne, Switzerland, on October 3, 1987.
