Literary serie à la Dumas.
The Holder of History invites us to listen to a story, stories, read History again, our History, and to travel, simply, through time and space with 5 actors, 5 stools, a bare stage, 2 racks loaded with costumes, and the unlimited power of our imagination.
On a rainy night, in the Ardennes, Martin Martin attends his father’s funeral.
He is far from imagining then that the discovery of a hand written notebook will take him to a dizzying quest through History and continents. 15 years later, in the heart of the Algerian desert, a mother and daughter mysteriously disappear.
They were led by the tale of an unknown man to look for books bearing the stamp of a bizarre chalice, and for a colossal treasure, accumulated through times by a legendary secret society.
