Andre Obey was a prominent French playwright during the inter-war years, and into the 1950s. Born in 1892 at Douai, France, he began as a novelist and produced an autobiographical novel about his adolescence, le Joueur de triangle (The Triangle Player). After his meeting with Jacques Copeau, he devoted himself completely to dramatic works. In October 1945 Obey became provisional general administrator of the Comedie-Franšaise. He was made full general administrator in April 1946, and resigned in February 1947 after just under a year's service. Obey's play Le Viol de Lucrece ? presented on Broadway in 1932 in a translation by Thornton Wilder, whose first Broadway production it was ? was drawn on by Ronald Duncan for the libretto of Benjamin Britten's opera The Rape of Lucretia. He died in April 1975 at Montsoreau, near the Loire River).
