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.

COVID-19 update

Following the postponement of our June production of Agatha Christie’s “And Then There Were None” the show is now planned for the 5th, 6th, 7th and 19th, 20th 21st November 2020 at the Theatre Arlecchino, Walkeweg 122, 4052 Basel.

The staging of the play will, of course, depend on the status of the Covid 19 restrictions that may remain in force at this time.

We very much look forward to once again being able to

provide you and our public with live theatre.  

   The Semi-Circle was at Expat-Expo Basel 2020   

We would like to gratefully thank all those who helped us at this event.

The Semi-Circle's highly successful autumn production of
"Sweet Expectations" has now closed.
