Maurice Hennequin (10 December 1863 – 3 September 1926) was a French-naturalized Belgian playwright.[1]

Biography[edit]

A grandson of the painter Philippe-Auguste Hennequin, Maurice Hennequin was the son of Alfred Hennequin (1842-1887), himself a playwright, who created a kind of vaudeville, with a complex plot but rigorously structured, nicknamed "hennequinade" [2] The young Maurice began in the world of theater at the age of 19 in 1882, sometimes helped by his father during his early years.

In a 45-year long career, he gave nearly a hundred plays, mostly comedies and vaudevilles, written either alone or in collaboration. Many of these works experienced vivid success, such as Le Système Ribadier, written in collaboration with Georges Feydeau, or Vous n'avez rien à déclarer ?, quoted by one character in the play A Flea in Her Ear by Feydeau, and twice adapted for film. Some of his plays even experienced real triumph, like Le Monsieur de cinq heures with 568 performances,[3] which was considerable in his time.

He married mademoiselle Braem.[4]
