French playwright and director.
Koltes is most famous for his plays The Night Just Before the Forests (La Nuit juste avant les Forêts, 1976), Sallinger (1977) and In the Solitude of Cotton Fields (Dans la Solitude des Champs de Coton, 1986).
Koltes also translated into French Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale. Like other absurdist writers, he felt exiled – in his case, as a gay man in a heterosexual world.
He died on 15 April 1989 due to complications from AIDS.
