The Semi-Circle
   English Language Theatre in
   Basel since 1975


Who we are

The Semi-Circle is Basel's English language amateur theater group. We are an association (Verein) under Swiss law.


For over 40 years we have been staging plays and musicals of various genres and by many different playwrights, including Ayckbourne, Coward, Pinter, Shaw and Wilde. There are usually two productions a year, one of which is a full-length play and the other a group of shorter one-act plays. These are time-consuming but tremendously rewarding endeavours for the people involved.


There are other activities as well, including play readings, workshops, and social events. Occasionally, we participate in drama festivals such as FEATS (Festival of European Anglophone Theatrical Societies), and our entries have won a number of prizes, most recently in 2014 with "The Extraordinary Revelations of Orca the Goldfish".
