The Semi-Circle
English Language Theatre in Basel since 1975


Autumn Production 2000 - "Straight and Narrow" by Jimmie Chinn

The play takes place in the home of Bob and Jeff, just outside Manchester on a Saturday afternoon in July. Bob has returned from a holiday with his live-in lover, Jeff, and it is clear that it has been something of a disaster. Indeed, they are surely on the verge of breaking up. The imminent break-up situation is having its own traumatic effect on the rest of his family and in particular on Vera, his unenlightened mother.
