Éloi De Grandmont
Éloi de Grandmont (1921-1970), the pseudonym of Joseph-Éloi-Augustin de Grammont, born in Baie-du-Febvre (Quebec), was a writer, playwright and theatre director in Montreal. In 1949 he cofounded, with Jean-Louis Roux, the Théâtre d'essai, which opened with one of his plays, Un fils à tuer. This theatre was replaced in 1951 by the Théâtre du nouveau-monde, which he directed for 3 years. Between 1954 and 1964, Radio-Canada broadcast a novel for radio by him (over 1½ years), 4 radio plays in the "Nouveautés dramatiques" series and 4 humorous weekly or daily serials. He authored an excellent adaptation of My Fair Lady and died only a few months after his appointment as professor at Université de Montréal's School of Translation.
