The show will be presented in French.

Come listen to stories (in French) on being gullible or the butt of a joke, on pulling a fast one or taking the bait. These stories of trickeries large and small will be told with all the humour of a good April Fools’ prank!

Presented by

Since 2017, Enfabulation produces a show in French with a very simple concept: based on a chosen theme, each performer tells a true personal story, as they experienced it—no notes, costumes, or props.
