La Maison Hantée

The story

La Maison Hantée is a play which is both scary and frightening...

..well, it is supposed to be!

But, the actors regularly break out of character when things go wrong and this turns this haunted play into an hilarious farce.

This play certainly is not scary, but it is definitely very very funny. 

"La Maison Hantée was excellent. ...the actors were brilliant and the students were engaged and really enjoyed the play!"

Highdown School, Reading.  Nov 2022

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

This play is performed by two native French actors. 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 plot will highlight many similarities to your student’s life, but in a humorous and exaggerated manner, making them relatable and increasing their enjoyment by empathising with the characters and storylines. 


Take confidence in our 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
