A Fairy Tale: A Play in Three Acts

Front Cover
Borgo Press, Dec 1, 2011 - Drama - 178 pages
If ever a scorned woman gets her revenge on a man, the Marquise is a model of the type! She cleverly forces him to marry her (for her fortune, of course!), and then gets him framed for murdering her. And, in the end, she comes to his rescue, nimbly extricating him from the trap she's prepared for him. You don't want to cross this lady! A Fairy Tale (Un Conte de fees) was one of the few actual collaborations between Alexandre Dumas and his close friend, Adolphe de Leuven, who penned some 170 dramas and librettos. A delightful comedy of crime and love!
