Englisches Seminar Universität Basel
Thu 30.05. | Fri 31.05. | Sat 01.06.
19:30 (16:30 on May 26)

The Gay Beggars Drama Group is an independent and non-professional theater company that has specialized in the production of plays (etc.) written in English. Their next production will be Tom Stoppard’s “Arcadia,” directed by Melanie Löw and Jonas Biedermann. In a country house in Derbyshire, the garden is uprooted, Romantic poets cause chaos, and a young girl makes revolutionary scientific and mathematical discoveries. Two hundred years later, academics try to piece together the mystery of what happened that day. Written in 1993, “Arcadia” is one of the most exciting, funny, nerdy, and all-around brilliant plays. Join them as they explore the relationship between past and present, order and chaos, the sciences and the humanities, Classicism and Romanticism, and a whole lot more!
The show on the 26th will additionally host a free Q&A session after the performance with the production team and some actors, which you are welcome to join irrespective of which (if any) performance you attend!
Tickets are CHF 20 for adults and CHF 15 for students and can be purchased via Eventfrog. The box office and bar open at 18:30, and doors to the theater open at 19:00 on all show nights except May 26 (bar/box office at 15:30, doors at 16:00); free seating.
