Founded in 1985, les Editions du Cerisier were born out of the Théâtre des Rues in order to leave a trace: theatrical texts are doomed to be forgotten when their shows have finished, if they are not kept alive in written text. The first two publications of the Editions du Cerisier are therefore devoted to the texts of the shows of the Théâtre des Rues.
Les Editions du Cerisier were therefore born, and the spirit which haunts it can only draw close to that of theatre-action. The most important desire is to publish proletarian literature. For this term is not in an outdated coma. It is no longer about quarrels on the probable or improbable proletarian purity or impurity of the author.
Les Editions du Cerisier, therefore, publish, by privilege and preference, novels, short stories, theatre, and essays which, clearly and without embellishment, deal with contemporary society.
