The French Agency DRAMA has been representing authors and works from all over the world since 1986. The company was founded by Suzanne Sarquier, who is the managing director of the agency. She establishes direct links with authors, theaters and literary agencies abroad. Suzanne studied in the heart of the Sorbonne and obtained a Literature Degree. After working at the literary agency Martonplay-Marta Andras for almost 10 years and the talent agency Arte, she decided to create the literary Agency DRAMA. Supported by local producers, theater directors and talent agents, the company became one of France’s leading play agencies and extended its area of expertise to searching for new writers, both in France and abroad, developing the French theater abroad.
