Zones Théâtrales

Zones Théâtrales 2019 is now over.

Join us on September 13-18, 2021 for the 9th edition

Zones Théâtrales is a biennial event whose mandate is to provide a showcase and meeting point for professional theatre from Francophone communities across Canada and the Quebec Regions. For the public, it’s an opportunity to discover fully staged theatre productions, new plays and works in progress, and to meet the artists behind these works.

Through eight French-language plays from across Canada, Zones Théâtrales invites participants to discover, in a convenient and accessible setting, some astonishing and dynamic approaches. From Moncton to Vancouver by way of Sherbrooke and Sudbury, all the originality and diversity, and especially the vitality, of Franco-Canadian theatre are in the spotlight on the stages of our nation’s capital.
