Pièce de théâtre

Chaque année, le département de français organise une pièce de théâtre pour le festival Palaver (Contact Theatre). Les étudiants peuvent choisir de tenir des rôles d’acteurs ou d’aider à l’organisation de la représentation (costumes, musique…).

Curtain raiser: Le Petit Mancunian,
short piece performed by year 10 pupils from Chorlton High School.

Presented in French.


Amélie has a busy love life! She has agreed to a fake marriage with Marcel and promised herself to the Prince, but vows to remain faithful to Etienne. How she untangles the conflict (with her police officer Dad, her goof of a brother, an interfering Godmother, and the jealousy of men) is the subject of this classic French farce.
