Play readings are an easy and fun way to get involved in amateur dramatics. Non-members are welcome.

Our next play reading takes place on Monday 8 June at the Centrepoint Library, Im Lohnhof 8, 4051 Basel.

Please arrive between 7pm and 7.30pm.  Centrepoint shares its entrance with the Musik Museum and can be found by walking through a church courtyard into a smaller courtyard.  The shared entrance is on the right hand side, and we will be there to let you in.  The reading will start at 7.30pm sharp.

We will read the following short plays:

“The Fall of Don Juan” by Valentin Krasnogorov

A bride and groom are forced by circumstances to offer a total stranger (an aging, oddly-behaving man) the role of a witness in their wedding ceremony. To kill time, the young couple asks their witness to tell them about women he loved. The result turns out to be quite unexpected.


“The Blue Room” by David Hare

A modern adaptation of Arthur Schnitzler's play La Ronde set in present day London.  It depicts a daisy chain of ten sexual encounters between five women and five men.  Unlike Schnitzler's original, all of the characters are portrayed by one actor and one actress.  Hare's adaptation was first performed at the Donmar Warehouse in 1998 with Nicole Kidman and Iain Glen in the lead roles.
