Upcoming shows

Join us for an evening of hilarity and good humoured feminism at the iconic Metro Arts Theatre! Indulge in French wine & food sold at the venue as you attend a comedy performed entirely in French with English surtitles.

Brisbane French Theatre is proud to present, in an Australian premiere, the Parisian hit play “Simone Says” (original French title “Et Pendant ce temps Simone Veille”), an outrageously funny show which revisits the evolution of women’s condition in France from the 1950s until today.

Through everyday life scenes, the play follows three lines of women over four generations, taking us on an historic journey complete with song parodies, and historical fact checks by a flamboyant host, Simone.

At once outrageously entertaining, informative and thought provoking, the play is enjoying a phenomenal success in France, where it has been seen by over 72,000 people since it opened in 2013.

Presented by Brisbane French Theatre in an Australian premiere, this play is performed in French, with English surtitles projected above the stage on a wide screen.

The play is recommended for an audience 15+. It contains mature themes, coarse language and sexual references that may offend some audience members.

Simone Says will show at the iconic Metro Arts Theatre from 27 – 30 November. Tickets available for purchase below.
