Oldest summer company in Quebec founded in 1958 by Georges Delisle. Its venue is a barn in a suburb of Quebec City (Ancienne-Lorette).
From its start it was conceived as a theatre of popular entertainment and provided a steady feast of French boulevard comedies and bedroom farces. The formula has proven to be hugely successful. Over the past 50 years, 166 comedies have been performed at Théâtre de la Fenière
Many of the city's and province's best actors have played the venue including Dorothée Berryman and Paul Hébert. The company has also premiered works, including Yves Thériault's Bérengère; ou la chair en feu (1965).
