The Four Little Girls

The Four Little Girls (Les Quatre Petites Filles) is a play written in French by the painter Pablo Picasso. It is the second of two full-length plays written by Picasso, the first being Desire Caught by the Tail. Written between November 24, 1947, and August 13, 1948,[1] it was published in 1949. In 1952 Picasso wrote a second version of the play using the same title.[2]

Both versions use a stream of consciousness narrative style, and many critics believe that Picasso never meant for the play to be staged, only read.[3]
