Jack Fitzgerald

Published by Limelight Editions

Paris Plays is part autobiography and part anthology of the Paris Years of the American playwright Jack Fitzgerald

Going to Paris in 1971, he founded The Paris English Theater and presented the premiere productions of nine of his plays

Fitzgerald carries you along to France with him and relates how he founded his theater group in Paris, who and what inspired him to write each of his plays, and what life was like for a budding playwright in Paris during the 70s

You will meet a cast of unforgettable people, some extremely famous and others unknown but all remarkable and unique

Fitzgerald's plays are humorous but dark in tone and filled with wit that wounds, delicious irony and dialogue that skewers the vapid beliefs of everyday society

He punctures the hollow pretensions of the middle class and their smug prejudices, coating his criticism with ingenious and irreverent wit from a social, literary and theatrical standpoint

Especially fascinating are the frank and detailed foreshadowing of Fitzgerald's own life that caused him to write each of his plays

You will have the unique opportunity to become acquainted with the real-life people who are the inhabitants of these distinctive plays
