Le château intérieur

In-house production

Théâtre du Nouvel-Ontario is a francophone theatre production company. All of our productions are presented in French, however, some shows feature English Surtitles™ so that more people can experience French theatre! We apologize, but not all content on this site is available in English.


Actor Pier Paquette invites you into his château intérieur, his interior castle, or if you prefer, his soul, where literary works that have shaped his life and remain with him to this day are preserved. Monologues, poems and stories are brought together in a bouquet, in a performance infused with profound humanity. An ode to the writings that inspire us to laugh, cry and reflect. Words that leave an indelible mark on us. Scripts that sometimes change our lives.

“I am fundamentally a performer. My art consists in taking someone’s words and putting them into the ear of someone else, in this case the audience. And to achieve this, I have to make the words my own; they have to become a second skin. For the actor, the metamorphosis occurs when the word becomes embodied… That is theatre.” – Pier Paquette
