Théâtre de l’Épée de Bois


Originally situated on Rue de L’Épée-de-Bois in the fifth arrondissement, from where it takes its name, the Epée de Bois theatre has been at La Cartoucherie, in the middle of the Bois de Vincennes, since the 1970s.

Like the three other theatres of the Cartoucherie, it inhabits the walls of an old weapons factory which was once part of a huge military estate. The exterior has remained intact, while the interior has been remodeled to suit the needs of theatrical performances.

The programme at the Epée de Bois offers great classics of the dramatic arts as well as more contemporary, even experimental, performances. Shows created for a younger audience also feature.
