Actor, singer, director, writer, poet, Olivier Py is one of the most enlightened representatives of the french theatre and dramaturgy.
Not hesitating to declare his Catholic faith and his homosexuality, Olivier Py creates a dramatic universe based on a dense poetic language. Theatres, in Py’s universe is a church where the audience can find new meaning in a world devoid of values.
Theatres is one of the first plays of Olivier Py with autobiographical elements. This text consists of twelve chapters, like a personal diary. The first scene starts with an act of violnence. A young man is stubbed on the road, with a knife. As he dies, he remembers, the most crucial moments of his life, he recalls his wounds, those wounds that led him to the creative path of writing.
