For the first time, the Alliance Française has assembled its Theatre troupe and wishes to present you a preview showing of its sketch show.
Craziness of love, jealousy of love, everyday love, new love, opportunistic love, all are a good formula that will make our characters sink or swim as they declare their true feelings on stage!
Come many and come all to this kaleidoscope of emotions!

After Jeune et Jolie, the French director François Ozon immerses the spectator into a skillfully triangulated psychological thriller about a woman - Claire (played by Anais Demoustier) - who learns that the husband of her deceased Best Friend (Romain Duris, whose performance was selected for Best Actor during the Césars 2015) is harbouring a most unusual secret.
This adaptation of Ruth Rendell short story The New Girlfriend won the Prix Jacques Prévert du Scénario 2015 in the “adaptation” category.

To illustrate the importance of recycling and the protection of the environment, two classes from CM1 (5th class) and 6e (1st year) from the Lycée Français d’Irlande went to Shankhill beach at the end of March to help clean the beaches of Dublin Bay.
From this household waste, the pupils created a Polar bear – a symbol of global warming – as a means to bring attention to the dangerous consequences of some of our actions on our environment.
The Alliance Française invites you to discover this bear as well as an exposition recounting the stages of this pedagogical project on the 27th of May!
