The story.

Parlez-vous Français? On the school skiing trip to France, if one of the children was going to have an accident it would be Archie.

Yes, sure enough, on day one, his fooling around has ended him in hospital.


Then, when his teacher is called away to deal with another emergency, Archie is left alone in the hospital where nobody speaks English.


It is very amusing to watch as Archie tries to get by with his basic French - with hilarious consequences.

"funny, engaging, inspiring and really empower our students!"

Why so many schools use Onatti as part of language teaching.

This play is performed by one native French actor and one English actor. The spoken French will be delivered slowly and clearly. We want your students to be able to follow the story, sustain their enjoyment and above all the boost their confidence.  

The French in this play include many words and phrases which the children will recognise and introduce new vocabulary in a relaxed and fun way. 

We take great care to pitch the story at the perfect level and make sure that no matter what level of understand they have your children will be able to follow the story.

A great boost to their confidence.

Confidence in pitching of the language.

It is important when creating a play in French to pay careful attention to the written script and delivery of the dialogue.  Our plays will develop your student’s skills in “applying the language they already know” to enable them to follow the story.


We know that new language should always be presented surrounded by familiar vocabulary and phrases to indirectly expose them to unfamiliar words.

Sheets for the play

Every play is accompanied with worksheets. They contain a synopsis of the play, some extracts from the written script and some useful words and phrases
