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).

 

 

NEXT PLAY READINGS

 

15TH OCTOBER

 

Exceptionally there will NOT be a play reading on the first Wednesday of the month in October.  Instead we will meet  as part of the AGM at the WAREHOUSE, RUE WAELHEM 69A, 1030 SCHAERBEEK on the 15th.

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!

THE MEMORY OF WATER
Three sisters; Teresa, Mary and Catherine, come together before their mother’s funeral, each haunted by their own demons. The play focuses on how each sister deals with the death and how it directly affects them. The three each have different memories of the same events, causing constant bickering about whose memories are true. As the three women get together after years of separation, all their hidden lies and self-betrayals are about to reach the surface.

 

***  How to find us:

Leaving the centre of Boitsfort follow the Boulevard de Souverain in the direction of Auderghem and take the first turning on the right which is rue Nisard.

Then almost immediately turn right following the sign for ‘ Les Fougères’.  This has a notice which says  ‘Propri  Privé’ which can be a bit off putting but persevere.

Follow the road up the hill passing several apartment blocks until you arrive at the last one, number 13, which is where we live.

Please ring bell marked Oliver-Sully

There is also a gate at the entrance which will be open until 8pm.  If you arrive after 8 please ring the bell at the gate and you will be buzzed in.

 

 

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 crisps, 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. 

How to Doodle:  All you have to do is click on the link above, add your name to the list under ‘Table View’, click in the box to show you are coming (or do nothing if you’re not!) and then ‘Save’ your entry.  If you have any problem with this, please do not hesitate to contact Janet.
