Our winter production:


Three Studies in Cruelty:

Harold Pinter, Mountain Language; Samuel Beckett, What Where and Catastrophe


As you may remember, we had to cancel our July production of these three short plays by Harold Pinter and Samuel Beckett, because an actor whom we could not replace had contracted COVID. We have now been offered a new time slot by the Sensemble Theatre in late November. The dates are:


November 28th, 29th, and 30th, at 8:30 p.m., at the Sensemble Theatre

Our plans for the summer of 2023

We have not yet decided what our summer 2023 play will be, but, after a two year interval, we will once again return to Sion/CH for an intensive rehearsal week between March 26 and March 31 / April 1, 2023.

As usual, we are also looking for newcomers to join our team. If you would like to act, and have good or even perfect English and would like to be on stage in our next production, or if you would like to be a prompt, lend a helping hand with stage management, makeup, stage design, sound design and costumes, or join our backstage and front of house teams, do get in touch with us. We welcome people from all backgrounds and different parts of the globe, and you don’t even have to be a student to join us! If you are interested, you should join us at our general meeting, which will be held on Tue January 17th, at 7:15 p.m., in rm 2127A (D building of the university). -- Auditions for the summer play will be held between this date and the end of the winter semester (February 10th).

AnglistenTheater production of Amanda Whittington's Thrill of Love featured in Nick Hern Books new blog post

In 2020, Nick Hern Books published a blog post about their Most-Performed Plays of 2019. Amanda Whittington’s play The Thrill of Love made the Top 10 and, because Nick Hern liked our pictures so much, they featured a photo from the AnglistenTheater production! Take a look at the blog post here.

A new AnglistenTheater Icon

Julia Wittmann ...

... has created a magnificent new Icon for the AnglistenTheater – although it’s in fact ages since we last produced one of Shakespeare’s plays: to be precise, this was Macbeth back in 1990 (see History of the AnglistenTheater).


We are still working ...

... on ways to make this icon available on T-shirts and, perhaps, mugs, at a reasonable price.


So perhaps in 2022 or 2023 ...

... when we belatedly celebrate our 40th anniversary, we’ll be able to tell you how to get hold of these.





Interested in joining us?

We always welcome new members, whether they would like to be on stage as actresses and actors, or rather join our team of creatives or the backstage and front of house crew.
