French playwright who wrote the screenplay for the film Julie de Carneilhan, based on a 1941 novel by the French writer Colette, directed by Jacques Manuel and starring Edwige Feuillère. He then met Pierre Barillet with whom he wrote “for fun” Le Don d'Adèle, which was an unexpected success, exceeding a thousand performances and receiving the Tristan-Bernard prize. Over the next several decades, Jean-Pierre Grédy and Pierre wrote more than twenty plays together. Certain of their plays were adapted to Broadway, including Fleur de cactus (Cactus Flower, written by Abe Burrows) and Quarante carats (Forty Carats). Grédy died on 6 February 2022 at the age of 101.
