His plays include: Le Portefeuille (dir. by Jean-Luc Moreau, Th. Saint-Georges, Paris 1995), Soleil pour deux (dir. by Christian Bujeau, Th. Montparnasse, Paris 1998; éd. L'Avant-Scène; translated into Italian and Germany, performed in Germany), La Surprise (dir. by Annick Blancheteau, Th. Saint-Georges, Paris 1999, starring Darry Cowl; éd. L’Avant-Scène, performed in Poland), Une femme de trop (adapt. from the American play that was the source of the famous TV series Columbo, Th. Le Temple 2005).
Pierre Sauvil also wrote the screenplay for the television film Première Neige (Arte, 1999).
