Théâtre La Catapulte

Founded in Ottawa in 1992 by a group of young artists under the direction of Patrick Leroux, Théâtre La Catapulte engages in the research and development of Franco-Ontarian plays for provincial and national production, for adult and young audiences.

The theatre also works in collaboration with the French Theatre of the National Arts Centre, the French Theatre of Toronto, le Théâtre du Nouvel-Ontario in Sudbury, le Théâtre la Seizième in Vancouver and le Réseau Ontario, and hosts productions by other French theatre groups.

In 2002-2003 the theatre toured its production of Le Testament du couturier (The Will of the dressmaker) by Michel Ouellette to four provinces.

It also presents works in translation; for example Des mondes possibles (Possible Worlds) by John Mighton in 2003; and Cette fille-là (The Shape of a Girl) by Joan MacLeod in the 2005/06 season.

Joel Beddows has been Artistic Director since 1998.

Its home productions take place in la Nouvelle Scène, Ottawa, a space shared with three other French language theatres.
