Saved From Drowning

Where can I find a copy of the play by René Fauchois that Jean Renoir's film Boudou Saved From Drowning (Boudu sauvé des eaux) is based on? Does an English translation exist?

I live near NYC if, god forbid, I have to trek out into the real world to get my hands on a copy.

I don't know personally, but try the people at theatrebooks. They have helped me find some crazy obscure playscripts. They ship. If any one knows, they do.

Ooops. Screwed up my link: theatrebooks.

Try "Livres Anciens Chaptal" if you're really desperate; the book is very hard to find.
