No Reading - Summer Holidays

ZEST will be on summer break and there will be no ZEST events 2 July - 25 Aug. Monday night readings will resume 26 August.

The Zurich English-Speaking Theatre meets almost every Monday evening for a play reading. Potential new members are always welcome - take a look at the reading details on this page for the next reading date.  All meetings take place at St. Andrew's Community Centre, near Stadelhofen in central Zurich (see the map below).  Doors open around 19:00 for an informal get-together and the reading starts at 19:30 unless otherwise stated.  You don't need to sign up or inform us that you are coming, but if you have any questions, please contact us via the General Enquiries page.


Play readings are organised and read by members without rehearsal with scripts in hand and a basic set.  Newcomers will not be initially asked to read, but if you'd like to get involved, talk to anyone on the committee and we will be glad to put you down on the reading list.

Monday readings are open to anyone and count towards your membership session count.  For more information on membership, see the membership page.


Following changes to the BAG restrictions, certificates will no longer be required to attend in-person events. Some venues still require us to wear masks despite the changes, which we must abide by. Please do not attend an event if you have COVID-like symptoms. Food and drink may be consumed again and wine will be provided again on Mondays in the coming weeks.
