The (Post) Mistress, known in French as Zesty Gopher s’est fait écraser par un frigo, tells the story of Marie-Louise Painchaud, postmistress of a town on the French River, who has the uncanny ability to read the village mail without opening a single envelope, and turn each letter into a magnificent song.

REGULARLY NOMINATED for Dora Mavor Moore Awards as Outstanding New Play and Best Ensemble (young audience division), Les Zinspirés continues to charm and entertain its growing audience.

Produced by Picouille Théâtre and Le Théâtre de la petite marée.WHEN A TREASURE IS WITHIN GRASP, OUR TRUE NATURE IS REVEALED. SINCE THE DEATH of Leonie’s mother, bedtime stories have lost their appeal.

DOM JUAN by MOLIERE
From May 10 to 28, 2017. Produced by Théâtre français de Toronto.
“ALL THE PLEASURE OF LOVE SUBSISTS IN CHANGE”, DOM JUAN
REBELLIOUS LIBERTINE. Incorrigible skirt-chaser. Dom Juan does not want to be a son. He does not want to be a husband. Nor does he want to be a master. Or worse —a hypocrite. Dom Juan simply seeks the freedom to love women without restraint and, most importantly, without limitation.
School Matinées are presented in French (no surtitles in English).
