Pressestimmen

'Turcaret is generally accepted as one of the best of French comedies, few people in this country cann ever see it... and unjustly neglected foreign classic.' Sunday Telegraph' '...a real discovery...the play is sharp and brisk, and might have been written jointly by Moliere and Goldsmith...' Sunday Time 'a biting social satire...this is the "Serious Money" of its day...' The Guardian '...it is a fascinating cynical comedy... John Norman's adaptation is full of twentieth century colloquialisms and the piece would probably work well in modern dress... The National Theatre...should now consider staging the play itself.' The Daily Telegraph
