the english theatre company
Based in the Gers département in south-west France, the English Theatre Company is an English language theatre group that stages plays and other performances in and around the Gers département. We formed our company in late 2016 and completed an ambitious programme of events during 2017.
We began with two radio plays, A King's Speech and Dad's Army at Montesquiou, Maubourguet and Condom. This was followed by a full stage production of Alan Ayckbourn's Absurd Person Singular performed in Lectoure and Maubourguet. During the summer months we staged a Musical Theatre Revue at Sauveterre and Château Hérrebouc. To finish the year off we produced two more radio plays, The Far Side of the Moore and Yes Minister, the Right to Know staged at L'Auberge , Montesquiou, the Ferme de Flaran, Valence-sur-Baïse, and at La Salle des Fêtes, Cazaux-Villecomtal.
Our programme this year is diverse and eclectic. We have already performed Dylan Thomas' Under Milk Wood at Sainte Dode, Cazaux-Villecomtal and St. Arailles and are progressing well with rehearsals for our major production, Tom Stoppard's comedy Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. This will be staged in May at Lectoure (4th & 5th) and Maubourguet (11th & 12th). Additionally, we are planning a unique centenary commemoration of the end of World War I in November.
We are always keen to encourage new members who are willing to take part, either on-stage or backstage, and you are invited to directly contact any of our officers as listed below, or simply email us on
