"Leocadia Gardi is dead but her ghost haunts Prince Albert. He has been struggling to keep her memory abetted by his aunt, the Duchess. The latter has designs on a young milliner called Amanda who bears a striking resemblance to the dead woman. The Duchess prevails upon Amanda to impersonate Leocadia, but the plot is discovered by Albert whose anger turns to fascination at the strong resemblance. It is not easy, however, to impersonate someone as bizarre so a crisis is reached when they realize their love for each other and Prince Albert resists the treachery to his memories. After a quarrel they part, but the Duchess, recognizing that in Amanda's love lies his salvation, encourages her to lay the ghost of Leocadia, and win her prince. This she does with tenderness and gentle perseverance. "--Publisher's website

71 editions published between 1950 and 2010 in English and Danish and held by 1,369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"According to Atkinson (Times), a play 'of many moods...wistfully romantic, satirical, fantastic...To make his points about love (the author) has invented a fable about twin brothers--Frederic, who is shy and sensitive, and Hugo, who is heartless and aggressive. Frederic is in love with a hussy who is in love with Hugo. To save Frederic from an unhappy marriage, Hugo tries to distract him by bringing to a ball a beautiful dancer who masquerades as a mysterious personage and becomes the triumph of the occasion. She is a susceptible maiden in her own right. She not only breaks up all the cynical romances that have been going on before she arrived, but loses her own heart as well.'" -- Publisher's description

The cavern; a play by Jean Anouilh( Book )

46 editions published between 1961 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,039 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a play within a play. The cook has been murdered but her employers seem to be indifferent. Her son is in a seminary and in distress. The maid is pregnant. The valet is philandering. The playwright, the central character in this play, says that he has lost his touch and is suffering writer's block. The Harvard Crimson 8/1/1967 noted: "The thick plot involves murder, rape, abortion, white slavery, and class struggle. And yet the author-actor, by continually breaking and repeating scenes and by imposing comic relief, subordinates the plot to his own creative concerns. At the end, the murderer is discovered by coincidence, and the plot is settled."
