Théâtre français de Toronto is proud to present Les Zinspirés 3D, a universe filled with untamed emotions, existential angst, BFFs, and (anti)social media. Five short stories, all written by teens from across Southern Ontario, brought to life by Théâtre français de Toronto, reworked by professional writers and performed by professional actors. An exceptional, provocative journey for the wildly creative teenager in all of us! Les Zinspirés is a youth-development program intended on introducing the art of playwriting and storytelling to local teenagers (14 to 18 years old). This unique initiative encourages Toronto’s youth to express themselves freely and find the means to do so effectively through theatre.
