Théâtre la Seizième has announced its 2017-2018 season, including two local and four visiting productions coming to Vancouver stages. Founded in 1974, Théâtre la Seizième is the only French language, professional theatre company in British Columbia. Every year, Théâtre la Seizième presents a mainstage season, and a young audiences season, in addition to a series of drama workshops, a training and dramaturgical development program for local artists.
No matter the language, Théâtre la Seizième aims to reach all culture lovers while also surprising its audience with new faces and new forms of stage performance. This season’s plays have been selected for the light they shed on some of today’s hot button issues (immigration, superficiality and appearance, birth rate and environmental protection, individualism and unity of the family, and the cult of performance).
“We are living in an age marked by profound changes and it is good, sometimes, to sit together and take stock of what is taking place around us. This is precisely what this season’s plays are offering, intelligently and with creativity.” stressed Esther Duquette, Artistic and Managing Director.
Théâtre la Seizième adds performances English surtitles, on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday shows to allow more non-French speaking culture lovers to experience the works.
