Romeo et Jeannette was -first produced in Paris in 1946. EDWARD MARSH writes: The title is significant. Anouilh means to bring the romantic grandeur of Shakespeare's famous double tragedy down to a modern workaday level. The play is in fact an attack on romantic values as symbolised by Juliet, and the two sisters Julia and Jeannette are in name as well as nature aeparate halves of this symbol. No man can be content with either, no man can do other than love them both.'
