A member of the inaugural Soulpepper Academy, Nicolas's version of Anton Chekhov's Three Sisters was produced at Soulpepper in 2007, directed by László Marton. He also co-created BLiNK with the other members of the Academy for the Luminato Festival.
A few months later, his play Greenland opened at the 2009 SummerWorks Theatre Festival. It was a critical and audience success, and won both the Now Magazine Audience Choice Award and the SummerWorks Outstanding Production Award. Later that year, Billon was voted one of the Top 10 Theatre Artists of 2009 by Toronto's Now Magazine.
His play The Elephant Song was adapted into the 2014 film Elephant Song, directed by Charles Binamé and starring Bruce Greenwood, Xavier Dolan, and Catherine Keener. His screenplay garnered both the 2015 Canadian Screen Award for Best Adapted Screenplay and the 2015 WGC Screenwriting Award for Features & Mini-Series.
Billon's newest play, Butcher, premiered at Alberta Theatre Projects in October 2014. The play deals with the theme of justice and features several characters who speak Lavinian, an invented language created by two linguists, Christina Kramer and Dragana Obradović, specifically for the play.
