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

Our next play reading is on Monday 5 October 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 - then follow the Semi-Circle signs.  We will start at 7.30pm sharp.

We will read "Table Number Seven" from Terence Rattigan's duo of plays "Separate Tables". This play, first performed in 1954, is set in a Bournemouth hotel of that time, and the guests are a collection of upper-middle class characters who have seen better times. One of the guests - Major Pollock - is, however, not quite what he seems.

A 1958 film version of "Separate Tables" combined the two plays. It won two Oscars: David Niven, Best Actor for the Major (an atypical role for him) and Wendy Hiller, Best Supporting Actress, who played the hotel manageress. For each of them it was their only Oscar.
