Three Studies in Cruelty:

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


Unfortunately, because an actor whom we could not replace contracted COVID, we have had to cancel our July production of three short plays by Harold Pinter and Samuel Beckett. We are however planning to stage these plays in late November or early December. Do keep an eye on this website to find out when exactly.



Rudolf Beck and the AnglistenTheater team



Please note that the general meeting scheduled for Tue 26th July (see below!) will go ahead as planned.

Our plans for the winter of 2022/23 and the summer of 2023

We have not yet decided what our autumn/winter play will be, but, after a two year interval, we will once again return to Sion/CH for an intensive rehearsal week in calendar week 41, between October 9/10 and 14.

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!


There will be an introductory meeting for the 2022/23 season
on Tuesday July 26th, 2022, at 7:15 p.m., in 2127a (D building of the University).
Do join us at this meeting if you are interested!

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.
