David Lescot is a playwright, director and musician who weaves non-theatrical disciplines such as music and singing into his work.
He stages his own plays: Les Conspirateurs (1999 - TILF), L’Association (2002 - l’Aquarium), L’Amélioration (2004 - Rond-Point), Un Homme en faillite (2007 - Comédie de Reims, Théâtre de la Ville), La Commission centrale de l’Enfance (2008 - Maison de la Poésie) which earned him a Molière award for Best New Talent, and L’Européenne (2009 - Comédie de Reims, Théâtre de la Ville). Le Système de Ponzi was awarded a playwriting grant from the Centre National du Théâtre, a production and touring grant from the Fonds SACD and the Théâtre de Nanterre-Amandiers.
In 2011 he staged Stravinsky’s opera The Rake’s Progress at the Opéra de Lille.
An associate artist at the Théâtre de la Ville, he was awarded the SACD New Talent Prize in 2008 and the Grand Prix de littérature dramatique (Playwriting prize) in 2009.
His plays are published by éditions Actes Sud-Papiers, and have been translated and performed in numerous countries (England, Italy, Germany, Scotland, Argentina, Portugal, Japan, Russia, etc.).
