Jump to navigation Jump to search

A one act French comedy in prose by Antoine de Fériol de Pont-de-Veyle. Bosman (1928: p128) wrongly lists it as by "Pont-De-Vesle". (Pont-de-Veyle is listed as one of the editors of the Bibliothèque dramatique de Pont de Vesle by Bibliophile Jacob.)

First performed in Paris, at the Théâtre de la rue des Fossés Saint-Germain, on 19 January 1739.
