Description:
First edition.
One of the 2250 copies on châtaigner (n° 1014).
First performed on 27 May 1944 at the Théâtre du Vieux-Colombier, we owe it to Robert Kanters to know the premises that enabled the author to stage this play: "In one day, Annet Badel decided to buy back the Vieux-Colombier and restore it to its former glory in the time of Copeau (...).And it was Gaston Gallimard who brought the handwritten text, or already published under the title Les Autres par l'Arbalète, of a play by an author whose first books he had already published, whose articles in the Nouvelle Revue française had shaken up established idols such as Mauriac or Giraudoux, and whose Charles Dullin had already staged a work, Les Mouches: Jean-Paul Sartre.

With a black ballpoint pen, Charlot drew his hat, cane and shoes and signed " Charlie Chaplin ". He was then Simone Berriau's host; it was for her that the drawing was made, during a stay of Chaplin in the south of France, near Hyères, where Simone Berriau offered herself "a vineyard": the magnificent Domaine de Mauvanne. Max Ophüls will be filming Divine there, and Charlie Chaplin will be staying for several weeks, taking advantage of the small beach that Simone rents near her estate, at the Vieux Salins d'Hyères.
After the Second World War - Mauvanne, the scene of a bloody battle, was occupied and pillaged by the Germans. Nothing of the collection of the library or archives was saved, and Simone Beriau, who ran a theater in Paris (she was the director of the Théâtre Antoine from 1943 to 1984), probably saved this drawing by bringing… Read more
