The Figaro Plays by Pierre Augustin Caron De Beaumarchais
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"Beaumarchais' plays have always seemed to need the same kind of shoring up as his reputation, as though they couldn't stand on their own without a scaffolding of good tunes. Yet, as John Wells's lively and splendidly speakable translations of the Barber, the Marriage, and A Mother's Guilt demonstrate, they need assistance from no one." -David Coward, The London Review of Books
