Winner! New York Drama Critics Circle Award, Best Foreign Play
The story is told on two levels: one comic and one bitter. The blustery sex farce concerns a general who fancies himself to be a toreador with the ladies, but he is disgusted with himself and the hollowness of his triumphs. Among the author's most psychologically compelling works, the New York premiere featured Ralph Richardson and Mildred Natwick.
"Comic entertainment of striking excellence.... A stunning sardonic triumph." - New York Post "Witty and sparkling... A hilarious comedy... hit." - New York Mirror
