This volume makes these plays accessible to contemporary scholars, dramatists, directors and students, to be read, discussed and performed. Eurydice, Eurydice is a classical allegory in a modern setting, addressing the theme of loss and recovery within contemporary society. Strange Encounters is reputed to be the first play in France to use onstage the cinematographic technique of flashback to create a play within a play. In Marsyas, Desvignes combines tragic discourse with musical interlude to achieve dramatic catharsis, representing the struggle of humanity against forces that would diminish individuality, creativity and freedom.
