Les Trois Africaines
Les Trois Africaines ("The three Africans") is a one-act comedy by an unknown author, for no other information is provided by the source, F.C.L. Bosman (1928, p.90). (Apparently Bosman's own source wrongly lists the title as Le Trois Africaines.)
The original text
It may possibly be a version of Les Nègres, a comedy in one act and in prose, by Louis-Edme Billardon de Sauvigny (1783).
