Lucienne Hill

Lucienne Hill (1923 - 2012) became well-known for her for her translations of French dramatist Jean Anouilh. After a brief career as an actress of stage and screen, she was nominated for a Tony Award for her translation of The Waltz of the Toreadors, and won one in 1961 for the Broadway production of Anouilh's Becket. Ms. Hill was first commissioned to translate Anouilh at the behest of Laurence Olivier, a longtime fan. She went on to translate over 30 plays, including the highly successful Dear Antoine.
