Enter our competition to win free tickets for A Theatrical Mistressclass on a Midsummer Night's Dream

The Lausanne Shakespeare Festival (LSF) is returning this June with a great line-up of plays and workshops, many of which are in English. 

Taking place between 1 and 3 June, this year’s festival will once again be based in the Théâtre La Grange de Dorigny, a unique performing arts center based on the University of Lausanne campus.

Following the format of previous years, LSF 2018 will combine full-length plays in the evenings with workshops, a film, street theater, and a range of experimental performances during the day. Like Lausanne itself, the LSF is fundamentally cosmopolitan, bringing together artists and audience members from a variety of linguistic backgrounds and featuring events in both French and English.
