Book Club -  Solstice d'hiver


Once again this year, TfT and the Alliance Française de Toronto are offering a book club focused on theatre. This virtual meeting will be an opportunity to discuss and explore mythical scenes that have marked the world of theatre. 

With Hadrien Volle, cultural mediator, we will try to understand the issues in the texts, discover their meanings and share our feelings about various recognized or emerging authors. Everyone is welcome to join the club, whether new to the art world or an experienced theater enthusiast, or simply seeking information and advice before seeing the play on stage. The only prerequisites are curiosity and the pleasure of sharing ideas on theatre… in French!

Winter Solstice is a German play by Roland Schimmelpfennig published in 2007. It is a cynical comedy set on Christmas Eve. Bettina's mother arrives for the occasion at the home of her daughter and her husband. She is accompanied by a mysterious man. The author paints an acidic portrait of the intellectual bourgeoisie. We will study the first three scenes, up to Rudolph's entrance.


$5 per meeting or $30 for all meetings. Those fees do not include the books which must be purchased independently from the book club. 

This activity is organized by Théâtre Français de Toronto. For more information please visit their website: http://theatrefrancais.com/en/bookclub/
