Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

written by: 
Tennessee Williams
directed by: 
Benedikt Langenbach and Eva Lichtsteiner

As a Southern family gather at their plantation estate on a steamy summer evening to celebrate the birthday of their patriarch, son Brick and his wife Maggie (“the cat”) constantly wrangle, dodging the secrets and tensions threatening their marriage. Tennessee Williams’ 1955 Pulitzer Prize winning play tells the story of a family in crisis, looking for hope through their web of lies.

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 staged over 75 productions and has become a permanent part of the Bernese theatre scene. Each year we put on an autumn and a spring production at the Theater am Käfigturm. Throughout the year we hold regular play readings and workshops. All dates and venues are publicized on this website and are also published on our Facebook page.

Each production requires the participation of many volunteers both onstage and behind the scenes. 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!
