The Semi-Circle
English Language Theatre in Basel since 1975


Welcome to The Semi-Circle

English Language Theatre Group

The Semi-Circle is a non-profit theatre group, based in Basel. Founded in 1975, we are all amateurs and we operate entirely with volunteers. It is our aim to bring to life on stage dramatic works in the English language and to stage two productions every year. We also hold some special events for members only, and monthly Play Readings which are open to all.

We are delighted to announce our next production
