WHAT LARKS

What Larks is an English-speaking theatre company based in Provence.

Our hope is that everyone - prospective members and future talent - will adhere to Joe Gargery's tenet in Great Expectations when famously he predicted good times ahead with, "What Larks, we'll have, Pip." So keep us in mind and support our activities as an audience – tell us what you’d like to see, where and when... Or tell us if you must be interested in using or developing your talents, be they behind the scenes, or the stage or crating from a word processor...sets; costumes; lighting; sound and visual mixing and editing; writing and performing.
