Colombe

Denis Cannan’s English adaptation of the Jean Anouilh play.

“The original production of COLOMBE in Paris was adjudged Anouilh in his most bitter mood. This adaptation for English consumption by Denis Cannan is perhaps purged of some of the cruelty. The comedy is there in full measure, the irony and tragedy not so strongly marked, but few could deny that, clothed in Peter Brook’s masterly production, the play is colourful theatre.” – Theatre World, February 1952
