In his Cahier Noir written at the age of seventeen, Olivier Py depicts with humour and lyricism his youth in the provinces. Painful confessions and brown-ink drawings. Will of enslavement, degrading ceremonies. One can find his obsessional themes like sexuality and faith, the world eroticised by literature. Thirty-five years later, the author and stage director has adapted this first novel for theatre. In a minimalist setting, a trio of actors unveil with panache the unique world of a great actor condemned to transcendence.
