Driving Miss Daisy by Alfred Uhry

Daisy Werthan, an elderly Jewish widow, is determined to maintain her independence. However, when she crashes her car, her son Boolie, arranges for her to have a chauffeur, an African American driver named Hoke Coleburn. Daisy and Hoke‘s relationship gets off to rocky start, but they gradually form a close friendship over the years, one that transcends racial prejudices and social conventions.

The Woman in Black: A Ghost Story adapted by Stephen Mallatratt from the book by Susan Hill

Obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over him and his family by the spectre of a Woman in Black, Arthur Kips engages a sceptical young actor to help him tell his terrifying story and exorcise the fear that grips his soul. The play unfolds around the conversations between the two gentlemen as they act out the experiences at Eel Marsh, a house full of secrets that lie behind the dark shuttered windows. This gripping play is the second longest running play on the West End, running from 1989 until March 2023.

Post-get-in clean-up (***at Theatre im Seefeld)

come over to the Theater im Seefeld and help us clean up after the get-in weekend! We will be starting at 19:00.

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.
