The Warehouse in Schaerbeek is the beating heart of community theatre in Brussels, which has welcomed hundreds of people and projects over its 30 years of use. It now requires essential and long overdue updates. Without them, we fear the curtain will finally come down on this wonderful community project. Play Your Part is your chance to secure the future of the Warehouse for another 30 years.

ECC presents four of the eight monologues curated by Mark Gatiss. Two were performed at this year’s FEATS, directed by Mark Prescott, and will be repeated + another two directed by Tanya Arler.
Originally broadcast on BBC Four to mark the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Sexual Offences Act, which decriminalised homosexual acts in private between two men over the age of twenty-one, Queers celebrates a century of evolving social attitudes and political milestones in British gay history, as seen through the eyes of eight individuals.
Poignant and personal, funny, tragic and riotous, these monologues for male and female performers cover major events – such as the Wolfenden Report of 1957, the HIV/AIDS crisis, and the debate over the age of consent – through deeply affecting and personal rites-of-passage stories.
Tuesday 25th to Saturday 29th of October, 20.00 at The Warehouse Studio Theatre.
As the second of its ‘Studio Nights’ series, The American Theatre Company presents ‘Almost, Maine’ by John Cariani.
Set in the snow-covered, fictional town of Almost in the U.S. state of Maine, the play consists of nine independent vignettes bound together by the magic of the northern lights, and explores romance, relationships and the variety of stumbles along love’s journey.
It will be performed from the 15th to 19th of November at The Warehouse Studio Theatre, Rue Waelhem 69a, 1030 Bruxelles.
