Performing English language theatre in Geneva, Switzerland since 1933

The Geneva English Drama Society was founded in 1933. It provides a diverse theatre programme with a wide variety of styles and periods. A typical season includes 3-4 full stage productions and 20 fortnightly staged playreadings, plus workshops and social events. The play readings normally attract 50-100 people, and provide onstage roles for both experienced and aspiring actors.



In Memory of Helen Rolef

Friends of Helen Rolef gathered on Tuesday, 24 July near the road in Tannay where she was killed last October in a car accident. With contributions from friends, the Geneva English Drama Society, and the Geneva Amateur Operatic Society, this bench, specially made of wood from the nearby Jura, was dedicated in her memory. The Mayor of Tannay, Mr. Schoppe and his assistant, M. Simon, joined in the ceremony.
