"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 )

47 editions published between 1961 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,045 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."
