(lit "Sharp Jerome") A farce in one act by Beaunoir (nom-de-plume of Alexandre-Louis-Bertrand Robineau, 1746-1823)

First performed in the Théâtre des Variétés Amusantes, Paris on 13 June, 1781 and published by Cailleau, Paris in 1781, Bélin, Paris, 1784 (as Jérôme Pointu), and Hookham, London in 1785.

In his history of South African theatre, F.C.L. Bosman (1928: pp.279 and 333) for some reason has the author of Jérome Pointu as "Dorvigny" not "Beaunoir".

1835: Performed in Dutch on 16 May in the Kaapsche Liefhebbery Theater ("The Cape Amateur Theatre") by the Dutch amateur company Vlyt en Kunst, with Pizarro (Von Kotzebue).
