Dear Representative Pelosi, We are writing to you today to ask you to do better. We, like you, are white women who care deeply about the direction in which our country is headed, and who believe that inaction in the face of oppression is unacceptable. Because we share those goals, we hope and expect that you will do the work to understand why we are so deeply disappointed and angry about your recent statements regarding your colleague, Representative Maxine Waters. We urge you to consider how you can better use your power to support Representative Waters and the struggle for liberation for all Americans.

He may owe his artistic bent to his mother, Marie-Magdeleine, a violinist who supplemented the family's meager income by playing summer seasons in the casino orchestra in the nearby seaside resort of Arcachon. Marie-Magdeleine worked the night shifts in the music-hall orchestras and sometimes accompanied stage presentations, affording Anouilh ample opportunity to absorb the dramatic performances from backstage.

He often attended rehearsals and solicited the resident authors to let him read scripts until bedtime. He first tried his hand at playwriting here, at the age of 12, though his earliest works do not survive. Jean-Louis Barraultlater a major French director, was a pupil there at the same time and recalls Anouilh as an intense, rather dandified figure who hardly noticed a boy some two years younger than himself.

He liked the work, and spoke more than once with wry approval of the lessons in the classical virtues of brevity and precision of language he learned while drafting advertising copy.

Supported by only his meager conscription salary, Anouilh married the actress Monelle Valentin in Though Valentin starred in many of his plays, Anouilh's daughter Caroline from his second marriageclaims that the marriage was not a happy one. Anouilh's youngest daughter Colombe even claims that there was never an official marriage between Anouilh and Valentin.

She allegedly had multiple extramarital affairs, which caused Anouilh much pain and suffering. The infidelity weighed heavily on the dramatist as a result of the uncertainty about his own parentage.

According to Caroline, Anouilh had learned that his mother had had a lover at the theatre in Arcachon who was actually his biological father.

In spite of this, Anouilh and Valentin had a daughter, Catherine, in who followed the pair into theatre work at an early age.

Anouilh's growing family placed further strain on his already limited finances. Determined to break into writing full-time, he began to write comic scenes for the cinema to supplement their income.

Though Anouilh's boss had happily lent him some of the set furniture left over from the production of Jean Giraudoux 's play Siegfried to furnish his modest home, the director was not interested in encouraging his assistant's attempts at playwriting. Giraudoux was an inspiration to Anouilh and, with the encouragement of the acclaimed playwright, he began writing again in Before the end of the year he made his theatrical debut with Humulus le muet, a collaborative project with Jean Aurenche.

In subsequent years, there was rarely a season in Paris that did not prominently feature a new Anouilh play and many of these were also being exported to England and America. Barsacq was a champion for Anouilh and their affiliation was a major factor in the playwright's continued success after the war.

With protagonists who asserted their independence from the fated past, themes during this period are more closely related to the existential concerns of such writers as Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus.

The most famous play of this group is Antigone, which "established Anouilh as a leading dramatist, not only because of the power with which he drew the classic confrontation between the uncompromising Antigone and the politically expedient Creon, but also because French theatre-goers under the occupation read the play as a contemporary political parable.

Anouilh himself grouped his plays of this period on the basis of their dominant tone, publishing his later works in collected volumes to reflect what he felt "represented the phases of his evolution and loosely resembled the distinction between comedy and tragedy.
