Launching the 57th Season!

Thursday 30 May 2024

Théâtre français de Toronto (TfT) is proud to unveil its 2024-2025 artistic season, an invitation to discover a kaleidoscope of human experiences. Through a series of nuanced stories, this new season aims to explore a variety of themes, from forbidden love to ecology, while blending humour and depth to tackle contemporary issues.

"This year, it's also very important for us to share with you a breath of fresh air. At a time when the world is facing societal issues that are upsetting, questioning, and challenging, we want to continue the discussion with sensitivity, but above all with humor and lightness," say Karine Ricard, Artistic Director, and Ghislain Caron, Administrative Director.

TfT will make you laugh with the comedy Feu Monsieur Feydeau!, a brand new farce written by Sébastien Bertrand (Les Filles du roi, Les Liaisons dangereuses : Correspondances inédites) that pays tribute to the vaudevilles of Georges Feydeau; TfT will transport you into the poetic memories of Cet été qui chantait, a creation by Marie-Ève Fontaine inspired by the famous novel by Gabrielle Roy. TfT will engage young audiences in a dialogue on ecological issues in Survie du vivant (Théâtre Le Clou !), co-presented with L'Alliance Française
de Toronto, and on gender stereotypes in Le problème avec le rose, (Petit Théâtre de Sherbrooke et de La [parenthèse]). The company will also explore the realities of transgender people in Joey Lespérance's Michel(le)(Théâtre La Seizième) and neurodivergent individuals in Cispersonnages en quête d'auteurice, (Joe, Jack et John), co-presented with Théâtre Passe Muraille.

Following the success of performances of Crawlspace in 2023, TfT is launching a national tour of this incisive comedy created by Karen Hines, translated by Mishka Lavigne, and directed by Miriam Cusson, starring Karine Ricard and Gloria Mampuya. Before going on tour, the play will return to the TfT stage for two exceptional performances.

Of course, as every year, the voices of youth will be highlighted in Les Zinspiré.e.s : le nombre sublime, directed by Vincent Leblanc-Beaudoin.

TfT reinforces its commitment to make culture accessible to schools with a program of touring shows. This season, Eudes Laroche-Francoeur's show Les Contes du Voyageur will travel directly to classrooms to amaze young students. The artistic team behind Théâtre Catapulte's participatory show Nombre will also be joining the educational adventure.

In addition to reinforcing cultural accessibility with touring shows, TfT is launching Un beau souvenir d'été, an intergenerational cultural mediation project organized as part of the play Cet été qui chantait. The project involves an exchange of correspondence between young and old, creating bridges between different age groups and enriching the perspectives of each.

In February 2025, during Black History Month, the company will open its studio for a series of public readings by authors from West Africa and Haiti, accompanied by cultural mediation activities to celebrate these rich and diverse cultures.
