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.

The play was performed at FEST (Festival of English Speaking Theatre in Switzerland) on Saturday 7th June and was attended by a number of GEDS supporters, most of whom travelled to Cham, Switzerland on the joint GEDS/GAOS coach.

The next day, the GEDS Chairman wrote: "This project had gone through many vicissitudes and hit the buffers on more than one occasion but yesterday it rose magnificently from the ashes and delighted all who saw it. Every ounce of comedy was consummately squeezed out and the audience roared, me included and I nearly knew it off by heart. We emerge with with reputation enhanced and I warmly thank everyone who played a part in bringing this delightful production to such a successful conclusion. David"
