Welcome to The Semi-Circle
English Language Theatre Group
The Semi-Circle is a non-profit English language theatre group, based in Basel. Founded in 1975, we are all amateurs and we operate entirely with volunteers, staging two productions every year - usually in June and November. It is our aim to bring to life on stage dramatic works in the English language. We also hold some special events for members only, and monthly Play Readings which are open to all. Scroll down for links if you would like to join us and/or support us.
Our next production:
Blithe Spirit by Noël Coward
Theater Rampe, Byfangweg 6, Basel
9, 10, 16, 17, 23, 24 June 2017
play concerns the socialite and novelist Charles Condomine, who invites
the eccentric medium and clairvoyant, Madame Arcati, to his house to
conduct a séance, hoping to gather material for his next book.
scheme backfires when he is haunted by the ghost of his temperamental
first wife, Elvira, after the séance. Elvira makes continual attempts
to disrupt Charles's marriage to his second wife, Ruth, who cannot see
or hear the ghost.
