(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.
Translated into Dutch as Jérome Pointu and published by B. Wild in 1782.
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".
