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!

Unable to sleep, Elaine Wheeler paces the living room of her Manhattan townhouse, troubled by unsettling memories and vague fears. Her husband tries to comfort her, but when he steps away for a moment Elaine screams as she sees the body of a dead man in the window across the way. The plot moves quickly and grippingly as the suspense and mystery deepens and the play draws towards its riveting and chilling climax.
