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.
In 2017 we produced 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.
In 2018 we performed Dylan Thomas' Under Milk Wood at Sainte-Dode, Cazaux-Villecomtal and St. Arailles and Tom Stoppard's comedy Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead at Lectoure and Maubourguet. In November we staged a special tribute to the centenary of the ending of World War I with Ben's War — a memorial written and performed by the Company that drew on personal memories. It was performed to sell-out audiences at Sainte-Dode and Caillavet.
For 2019 we have an emphasis on comedy with a series of Comedy Theatre Lunches in February followed by a major production in the autumn. See our future events page for details.
