By exhuming a text that is difficult to access, L'Oncle curé by Victorine Miller, premiered at the Théâtre du Parc in Brussels at the close of the 1913-1914 season, this edition hopes to give it the destiny of The Marriage of Mademoiselle Beulemans, resounding success of the same decade. The two comedies were interpreted in particular by Ambreville and Nélès known for mastering the zwanze to perfection. Our edition retraces on this occasion the careers of these two actors from Brussels, allowing, with archival documents in support, to complete the data on Ambreville and to discover those on Nélès, snatching them from oblivion in which posterity often holds comic actors.
