Switzerland is home to numerous amateur theatre groups that regularly stage performances in English. The most prolific ones put on two shows a year and host weekly play readings. What they all have in common is their desire to engage in and share a piece of their culture. This podcast takes us to a performance in Bern as well as a play reading and rehearsal (pictured below) in Zurich. 

Most of the clubs are concentrated around Basel, Lake Geneva and Zurich, but there are opportunities to experience and participate in English-language theatre in other places as well. 

Is your club on the map? Please get in touch if not.
