Welcome to Upstage:

Berne's English-language Amateur Theatre Group

Located in beautiful Berne, Switzerland, Upstage staged their first production in 1982.

Since then our lively theatre group has established itself among the English-speaking drama groups in Switzerland and has become a permanent part of the Bernese theatre scene. Each year we stage an Autumn and a Spring production - throughout the year we hold regular play readings and workshops. All dates and venues are publicized on this website you can get snippets of news and information on the Upstage Facebook page.

If you are interested in joining us, Upstage offers a wide range of opportunities to participate in English-language theatre productions. We might have something just right for you!

Our 2014 Spring Production

A Streetcar Named Desire

written by: 
Tennessee Williams
presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD
and with the University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee, USA
directed by: 
F. Raymond Sickly

Disturbed by her past, embarrassed by her present, and confused about her future, Blanche seeks refuge at her sister’s apartment. Her presence upsets the balance of the household and her aristocratic pretenses infuriate Stanley, Stella’s working-class husband. As Blanche fumbles for love and Stella prepares for motherhood, Stanley exposes the lies and delusions that support Blanche, callously destroying her tenuous hold on reality.
