Dorimond (sometime spelt Dorimont or Dorimon), real name Nicolas Drouin (1628–1693), was a 17th-century French comedian and playwright, born and died in Paris. In the early 1660s, he published some plays that have influenced (or were influenced by) Molière, which is the main reason why his name is not forgotten.
