The play at the domaine d’O

Marion Coutarel depicts the mind and world of RC. Similar to 2 other american novelists, Hemingway and Kerouac, RC’s world inspired the stage manager Marion Coutarel. She tells the true story of RC, his love of women, the alcohol ,and his editor, a writer with a scalpel in hand, not a pen, in a play where all the characters are embodied as in a E.Hopper painting.

E.Hopper has often been described as RC’s artistic twin brother .
