Welcome to La Troupe des Anciens

We’re back in April 2023!

We have sorely missed the company of Molière and of our loyal audiences since our 50th anniversary season in April 2019. It gives us great pleasure to let you know that we will be presenting a double bill of “The Doctor in Spite of Himself” by Molière and “The Bald Soprano” by Ionesco on April 21 and 22 at 7:30 PM the George Ignatieff Theatre. Email tickets@latroupedesanciens.org for tickets.

For one page summaries and full texts of both plays, see our 2016 production page. More details to come soon!

Welcome to the Troupe des Anciens de l’Université de Toronto (“The Alumni Troupe of the University of Toronto”) web site. The troupe has presented plays in French by Molière and other playwrights for more than fifty years, has helped to educate hundreds of high school and university students, and has brought enjoyment to thousands of spectators.
