The Semi-Circle
English Language Theatre in Basel since 1975


Welcome to The Semi-Circle

English Language Theatre Group



The Semi-Circle is a non-profit English language theatre group, based in Basel.  Founded in 1975, we operate entirely with volunteers, staging two productions every year - usually in June and November.  It is our aim to bring to life on stage dramatic works in the English language.  We also hold some special events for members only, and monthly Play Readings which are open to all.  Scroll down for links if you would like to join us and/or support us.
