Le Livre Blanc is an innovative new piece for puppetry, music and voice based on Cocteau's once-banned novella of the same title. Le Livre Blanc, a ‘white paper’ on homosexual love, was first published anonymously in France by Cocteau’s contemporary Maurice Sachs and was at once decried as by the critics as obscene. The semi-autobiographical narrative describes a youth’s love affairs with a succession of boys and men during the early years of this century. The young man’s self-deceptive attempts to find fulfilment, first through women and then by way of the church, are movingly conveyed; the book ends with a strong plea for male homosexuality to be accepted without censure. One woman telephone opera in double bill with a puppet show based on Cocteau's once-banned novetta.
