    Our next play reading is on Monday 8 May, 7.15pm for a 7.30pm start.  This month we will be in the Conversation Room, Centrepoint Building, Im Lohnhof 8, 4051 Basel.  Members and non-members are welcome.


    We will read "A Day in the Death of Joe Egg" by Peter Nichols:

     

    In a world with little religious faith, a distrust of medicine and moral confusion on euthanasia, this play is a disturbing and funny mixture of pain and comedy.


    Bringing up a severely handicapped daughter is putting a heavy strain on Bri and Sheila’s marriage.  Their somewhat ridiculous upper class friends, Freddie and Pam, have come round for the evening with the intension of trying to persuade them how best to look after Joe.  But the evening doesn’t end at all as expected.

     

    Note: This is a wonderful play but too long to be read in one evening.  We have decided, therefore, to read only Act 2 and to give an introductory summary of Act 1.

     


    You can arrive any time from 7.15pm.  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 Conversation Room.
