Monthly Play Readings


The club holds monthly play readings on the first Wednesday of each month. This acts both as a way of introducing new plays to the members, of providing a club activity for members not currently actively involved in a production, and also as a social event for club members. The evenings are held at members houses, and the only requirement to take part is to turn up with enthusiasm (and a small contribution to the refreshments).




We aim to start reading at 8pm (because some of the plays are rather long), HOWEVER  if you arrive after this time it’s REALLY not a problem! Don’t be embarrassed, we all know that work/transport/parking can cause delays!

Wednesday 2 May


Glenn Vaughan will lead us in reading


Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

By Edward Albee



We will meet Chez Glenn & Lynne

Boulevard Leopold II, 209*

1080 Molenbeek-Saint-Jean


7.45pm for an 8pm start



*Press button marked the umbrella factory.

Parking difficult early evening but there is a public car park at Simonis and easy walk down hill.



Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Famous as a film starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, this play was first staged in 1962. It examines the complexities of the marriage of a middle-aged couple, Martha and George. Late one evening, after a university faculty party, they receive an unwitting younger couple, Nick and Honey, as guests, and draw them into their bitter and frustrated relationship.

At the time of going to press we would welcome offers to host and lead the next play reading on 6 June!


If you haven’t come to a play reading before, new participants are always welcome!  Please sign up, as above, and for further information email Janet at the play readings email address.  There is no need to prepare: this isn’t an audition! We all take turns in reading the roles in a friendly atmosphere.  Drinks and nibbles are part of the evening, and contribution towards these (a bag of crips, a bottle of whatever you’re drinking) are always welcome, but not compulsory!



Every month Janet emails a reminder to people who have attended in the past and wish to be on the mailing list for these reminders.  If you would like to be added to the ECC Play Reading Email List, please email Janet.
