Accompanied by a host of fanciful characters including the Cultural Official, the Policeman of Desire, the Killjoy, and the Child, French playwright Olivier Py exhorts young actors to resurrect the miraculous powers of language and theatre, lost sometime between the heyday of ancient tragedy and the invention of the electric French fry maker. Epistle to Young Actors is a delightfully unfashionable joust against the forces of chaos, despair and modernity. Photo credit: Alain Fonteray
