Exchange Theatre Festival

Celebrating exchange of languages and cultures in London Since 2007, Exchange Theatre has been very proud to hold an annual festival, mixing bilingual professional productions with bilingual amateur dramatics. The event grows from strength to strength and gains more and more success and recognition each year. The 9th edition owned the company an Off West End nomination in the best direction category for the production of The Doctor in spite of Himself, by Molière. The critical acclaim by both English and French press based in London, helped greatly raising the profile of the company, with the goal of establishing the company as a sustainable household name in the London theatre and culture.

Exchange Theatre is ‘en route’ to reach this goal. Since the nomination, and after entering the Royal Opera House, the artistic director of the company finally found a real echo to his theatrical voice, now heard and recognised. And, in the complex time of the post-Brexit aftermath, such recognition was not easily achievable. Both press and audience agree: Exchange Theatre is growing and clearly earning its credit.
