Rault’s works deal with contemporary and historical themes.

He was awarded the Grand Prix de l’Académie Française for his play Le Caïman about Marxist philosopher Louis Althusser, who killed his wife after 30 years of marriage.


Antoine Rault was born in Paris. In 1967, he graduated from the Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Paris, where he studied literature and politics.

Subsequently, Antoine Rault worked for 15 years as a ghostwriter for the chairman of an international company and several French politicians. He was also a public relations advisor for a French minister.

Although his first play La Première Tête, which deals with the French king Louis XVI and the beginning of the French revolution, had been performed in 1989, Antoine Rault had to wait until the success of his second play, Le Caïman, to become a full-time writer.
