  1. To the IB students here…hello from an IB teacher.
    You can find a large selection of articles in jstor – and you may wish to look for specific practitioners in your information search.

    For example, a good starting point is
    https://www.jstor.org/stable/26277407?seq=1#metadata_info_tab_contents – you will be able to read, highlight and be directed to further research sources at the end of the paper. If your school doesn’t have access to jstor the good news is that this one here is an source so, you can access it.

  2. Thank you for posting this site. It’s very helpful. I’m a grad student doing a craft paper on “Farce” and was wondering, as many people I see before me, if you happened to have any helpful links or source information I could use regarding French farce, British sex farces, the history of farce, etc. Anything would be much appreciated if it’s no trouble.

  3. Alright, I’m glad to see I’m not the only one struggling, as I’m also doing my RP on French Farce. The structure of our class involves doing each of the projects 4 times, with the last one counting as the grade for IB. This is another Practice Presentation, so it’s not absolutely imperative that I get the best possible information, but I would greatly appreciate any help I could get. Thank you.

  4. A little late for the party, but I am also doing my presentation on French Farce and I can’t find anything on performance conventions. If anyone could send some help here is my email:

  5. I am also doing my RP on French Farce and would appreciate some links, i’ve been searching far and wide on the web and have found nothing, I have searched through over 5 academic databases and found nothing. Anything will help at this point

  6. Scarce resources are freely available on the Internet for French Farce, IB Theatre students. You’ll need to hit a university library to get anything useful on that topic. – Justin

  7. Wow this appears to be quite a common problem. Im also doing my RP on French Farce and would appreciate absolutely any help with the conventions and stock characters. Thanks in advance!

    1. I am also doing my IB research project. If you were able to get the sources I’d appreciate if you’d be able to forward them to me, thank you πŸ™‚

  8. I am in the same position as the both student above! I am working on IB Research Presentation, and would appreciate it if you could possibly provide some information on the different theatrical conventions of French farce.
    Thank you sincerely in advance

    1. I finished my IB and hence the RP on French Farce last year. I could email you some of the links I found useful for my research.

      1. Hey, I’m doing my RP on French Farce as well. Could you please send me some of the resources. I’d really appreciate some help… my email is: [email protected]. Thank you so much!

  9. Similar to the student above, I am currently working on an IB Research Presentation pertaining to French Farce and was wondering if you could possibly provide some more insight into the physical characteristics and actions required in farce it would be much appreciated.
    Thank you sincerely for your time

  10. This article was written very interestingly, giving a good insight into not only “Boeing-Boeing” but also the farce genre in its entity. I am currently working on an IB Research Presentation about French farce, researching into its historical context but more importantly notable conventions. However, it appears as though there is not a lot of information on that subject public yet. If you could describe and outline some of the most important characteristics or conventions of the genre that would be of so much help!
    Thank you very much in advance.
