Melbourne French Theatre is a unique Australian theatre company presenting plays in French, organising events and serving as an agency for French actors for all multimedia applications. It was founded in 1977 by Michael Bula and A. David Gorrie under the patronage of His Excellency the French Ambassador to Australia.
Two to four productions are mounted each year being mainly theatrical plays either entirely in the French language or in bilingual (French/English) form.
On some occasions cafés-théâtres and other projects are presented. The Theatre draws its inspiration for plays from a large repertoire of French playwrights from the Middle Ages until the present day.
