ECC: A Wilde Evening (16-20 May 2017)

The ECC will be staging two one-acts plays from 16-20 May. More details to follow…

A Woman of No Importance (Oscar Wilde) – Directed by Conrad Toft

The ECC will be staging an abridged version of Oscar Wilde’s satire A Woman of No Importance here in Brussels from 16-20 May and at FEATS Frankfurt for one performance between 2 and 5 June. With his usual wit, Wilde takes us on an epic romp of Victorian high society exposing scandals and delivering his fine repartee at every opportunity.

The Impotence of Being Frank (Joe Wilde) – Directed by Hugh Dow

The Impotence of Being Frank is a short farce intended as a tribute to Oscar Wilde and Joe Orton, in which a tenacious detective manically – and ultimately successfully – tracks down the perpetrator of a crime that wasn’t committed. It is the first play by a highly renowned Brussels based biographer and academic, writing under the pseudonym of Joe Wilde. The play, originally written for the radio has never been performed before.

BSS: Henry IV (19th-24th June)

The Brussels Shakespeare Society presents William Shakespeare’s Henry IV directed by Sven Delariviere.

Having deposed Richard II, Henry Bolingbroke’s turbulent reign as Henry IV is covered in two plays which our director has abridged into a single drama, featuring – as light relief from the historical backdrop – the largely criminal activities of his wayward son Hal (later Henry V) and Falstaff’s gang of ‘lowlifes’!

Venue: Petit Théâtre Varia, rue Gray 154, 1050 Ixelles

Dates: 19 – 24 June 2017 at 20:00. Matinee on 24 June at 14:00

Tickets: 16 Euros for Adults, 14 Euros for under 18s and groups.

School groups should book using the online system then write to if they would like a “page-to-stage” talk from the director before curtain up.
We offer school groups one free Teacher ticket for every 10 students.

SPECIAL OFFER FOR SCHOOL GROUPS – SEVEN Euros per ticket on opening night and at the Saturday matinee! (Only available by email to
