Zurich Comedy Club has been presenting a series of public rehearsed play readings since the end of 2014. These readings are held at St. Andrew's Community Centre, Promenadengasse 9 in Zurich. The plays presented have already been read and enjoyed at our club meetings and selected as more suitable for a smaller venue rather than the large stage and auditorium at the Seefeld theatre.
The Community Centre holds 50 people and the audience is seated at small tables around the hall and are able to enjoy a free glass of wine and nibbles during the performance, thus creating a pleasant, intimate atmosphere.
The plays are well rehearsed beforehand and although the scenery is minimal and the actors have scripts in their hands, past audiences have enjoyed some excellent performances.
The seats are unnumbered and tickets can be purchased online about one month in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org. A few tickets may also be available at the door on the night.
Past public readings have included:
LOVE LETTERS by A.R. Gurney
CROSSING DELANCY by Susan Sandler
ENTERTAINING ANGELS by Richard Everett
MAURICE'S JUBILEE by Nichola Mcauliffe
MR. WONDERFUL by James Robson
PASSING STRANGERS by Eric Chappell
IRON by Rona Munro
TRAVESTIES by Tom Stoppard
HANDBAGGED by Moira Buffini
BETRAYAL by Harold Pinter
Our next public rehearsed reading will be on June 2017. More details here as soon as we have them.
