Reading Theatre

Here are a few signposts to guide your readings. Our lists are based on the 5-10-20 model: five essential readings, to which we have added five and then ten others.

These works are divided into three categories:

  1. Repertory classics, from antiquity to the mid-20th century;
  2. Quebec and Canadian plays in French; and
  3. Contemporary works.

For those interested in dramatic theory, we have suggested various essays on theatre.

Finally, if you require more information on specific subjects, we invite you to consult our list of reference works, many of which have provided material for this site.

Enjoy your reading! And don’t hesitate to send us your comments or preferences!
