About Us

In 2015,  a bunch of theatre amateurs and future friends met while producing, in collaboration with Growl Theatre, the first-ever play performed entirely in French in Brisbane: Life x 3 by Yasmina Reza. After three sold-out shows the project was renewed the following year, this time with another of Reza’s plays: Carnage.

In 2017, the BFT officially became a not-for-profit incorporated association and produced two French plays: The Student and Mr Henri (performed at the Queensland Multicultural Centre in July), and Simone Says (performed at Metro Arts in November, sold out season). 

In 2018, the BFT produced its first 100% original play: Helas Avril, a goofy romantic comedy set in the Paris metro that sold out and attracted BFT’s largest audience to date with close to 700 happy viewers.

In 2019, the BFT will go further with another ambitious original production, as well as theatre workshops for adults.
