IMPORTANT: Due to the current virus outbreak all ESC events are suspended until further notice!

Update, April 19:

We hope you are all keeping well in these unprecedented times! It is sad not to be seeing any of you for so long!

As the present restrictions continue until at least May 4th, it will be clear that our meeting on Saturday, 25th April, cannot take place.

The Orange Planet Theatre, like other theatre groups, has not been able to rehearse, and their other May performances have already been cancelled, so we have agreed that their readings on Saturday, 9th May, will not take place either. The chances are high that they would still not be allowed anyway.

We hope to be able to re-schedule both these events in another semester.

And in view of the closeness of the contact involved in a Scrabble evening, we are stating right now that our meeting on Saturday, 13th June, will not take place either.

It is very disappointing to have such a long period without events. As compensation to members for the cancelled events between March and June, we plan to reduce membership for 2021 for those who have paid a membership fee for 2020.

If an easing of restrictions during the summer allows us to expect a return to something like a normal cultural program, then we would hope to issue the autumn program during July or August, with or without a late summer outing.

Wishing you a healthy and happy summer in spite of the restrictions!

‘Some Girl(s)’ by Neil LaBute

Friday, 13 April 2018, 19:00h

Performed by our local company, English Theatre Düsseldorf.

On the eve of his wedding, a successful writer travels across the country to meet ex-lovers in an attempt to make amends for past relationship transgressions. Acclaimed and highly discussed playwright and filmmaker Neil LaBute has established himself firmly as an unforgiving judge of the ugliest side of human nature. His language is terse, rhythmic and highly colloquial. Written in 2005, two years after ‘The Shape of Things’ (at ESC in 2011), this play was adapted and premiered as a film in 2013.

In cooperation with the International Education Centre of the VHS Düsseldorf ‘Die Brücke’

Venue
