How did they perform plays at the Comédie-Française one or several hundred years ago? The cycle of Special Days invites audiences to step into the Repertoire time machine and take a close look at the audience practices of the past.

What ways did they pay attention to plays in different historical contexts? Only a few decades ago, every evening featured two plays, a short one –or curtain raiser– and then the main event. What kinds of careers were enjoyed by plays performed as openers and that are never staged today? Thanks to the daily registers kept since 1680, everything that has happened in the House of Molière since its creation has been recorded in writing. It is to discover this precious record that the public is being invited today. There will be readings by the actors of the Troupe, presentations of the authors along with the actors who performed their texts, and an analysis of the context of the performance: each event, run by an actor from the Troupe and coordinated by Agathe Sanjuan, the Comédie-Française’s curator-archivist, is an opportunity to delve into a literary heritage that comprises more than three thousand plays.
