About the Author

Jean Anouilh (1910-87) is regarded as one of France's best-known dramatists. ANTIGONE firmly established his popularity in France in 1944 and Peter Brook's 1950 production of Ring Round the Moon (1947) made his name in England. Twice married, he lived mainly in Switzerland for the last thirty years of his life.


"Anouilh is a poet, but not of words: he is a poet of words-acted, of scenes-set, of players-performing." --Peter Brook, Director
