Each season, the Comédie-Française is sent about four hundred plays, which are read and studied by a committee, the Readers’ Bureau. These sessions are conducted by the Comédie-Française’s literary adviser and culminate in the selection of nine of these texts, which are then read and performed by the Troupe in front of an audience. Nine occasions to discover nine playwrights, nine new plays that represent how diverse dramatic writing can be. All three cycles revolve around a different type of text: the first one will feature pieces written in French, the lively young authors scene will make up the second one, while foreign plays will be presented during the third one. At the end of each cycle, after a discussion overseen by literary adviser Laurent Muhleisen, the audience takes a vote to elect their favourite piece.
