  • Centrepoint Library, Im Lohnhof 8, 4051 Basel


Registration is closed

Our next play reading is on Monday 2 May, at the Centrepoint Library, Im Lohnhof 8, 4051 Basel.  Members and non-members are welcome - free of charge.

We will read "God of Carnage" by Yasmina Reza.  Originally "Le Dieu du Carnage", this comedy of manners features two sets of parents, one of whose child has hurt the other at a public park.  They meet to discuss the matter in a civilized manner but, as time goes on, the discussion becomes increasingly childish and chaotic.


Roman Polanski directed the 2011 film adaption "Carnage" featuring Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly, Christoph Waltz and Kate Winslet.

You can arrive any time after 7pm.  The reading will begin promptly at 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 upstairs to the Library.
