Be part of creating an exciting new work based on the father of novelist Alexandre Dumas!

About the Project

We're Atlanta’s unique French-language theatre company, Théâtre du Rêve (Theatre of the Dream), and we need your support to create our newest play, Code Noir : Les Aventures du vrai Comte de Monte Cristo (Black Code : The Adventures of the Real Count of Monte Cristo).

Our mission is to bring the language and cultures of the French-speaking world to life on the American stage, and to kickstart important dialogue through top-quality productions and strong educational programs. We perform in French with English supertitles, so everyone can experience the work we’re so passionate about!

Code Noir
 explores the life of General Alexandre Dumas, a bi-racial man who rose to become one of the most celebrated generals of the French Revolution, and his famous son of the same name, whose best-selling novels include The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers. Race, power, and history collide in this true-life story.

Your donation – at any level – provides the resources we need to hire actors and designers, support the writing team, and craft the set and costumes that will transport our audience to Revolutionary France. Your gift also helps us offer deeply discounted tickets to school groups, ensuring access to the arts and foreign language study for students from across Georgia.
