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 theatre group, based in Basel. Founded in 1975, we are all amateurs and we operate entirely with volunteers. It is our aim to bring to life on stage dramatic works in the English language and to stage two productions every year. We also hold some special events for members only, and monthly Play Readings which are open to all.



Friendship spreads generously, but how far can it stretch, before it snaps? Friendship can be strengthened in crisis or diluted by time. Forgotten friendships can be revived, whilst others remain uncertain. How could anyone absolutely trust a Neanderthal in a dating situation and how could one possibly befriend a robot? Find a few answers and lots of inspiration during our evening of short and friendly (?) plays.
