Acclaimed theatre actress Françoise Faucher contributes to enriching our lives through art and culture. Does your city or town have a theatre group? If so, go to one of their plays and organize a discussion involving the actors and your students. If not, put on a short play from one of the theatre’s classics, but set it in our own time. In this way, students will be able to see that art transcends the ages and that its language is accessible.
