The 2010-2011 Season

ECC: Private Fears in Public Places (25/2 – 5/3)

Private Fears in Public Places

Diana Morton-Hooper (Honour, Absurd Person Singular) directs Alan Ayckbourn’s superbly constructed, sharply observed 2004 play for The English Comedy Club.


It follows seven characters, each with something to hide, searching for companionship and love in an emotional social blur through four tightly interwoven stories.  She has gathered a cracking ensemble to blow away those winter cobwebs:


Craig Simpson & Rachel Cuff as Dan & Nicola,

Abi Greef & Richard Foxon as Imogen & Stewart,

Alma Forsyth & Mark Prescott as Charlotte & Ambrose

and David Buckley as Arthur


It’s funny, poignant, and a must see. 


Performances on Fri 25 Feb and Sat 26 Feb 2011 at 8 p.m.

plus a matinee on Sunday 27 Feb at 3 p.m. and

Tues 1 to Sat 5 March 2011 at 8 p.m.

at The Warehouse Studio Theatre, 69a rue Waelhem, 1030 Schaerbeek


Special Advice:  The play lasts around 90 minutes with no interval and because of the way it is staged, once the play has started latecomers will not be admitted into the studio theatre.  Curtain up is at 8 p.m.  Please leave plenty
of time to find a parking space in the area as parking can be difficult at that time of night.  We are looking forward to seeing you at the performance!


Sorry, there are no more tickets left for this production.

ETC: Hamlet unplugged (15-19 March ’11)

 ETCetera  Presents: Hamlet Unplugged



Hamlet is the supreme character in the finest play by the greatest playwright we have. He struts, frets, worries, jokes, abuses, roars, feigns madness, goes crazy, kills and finally is killed. All this because his mother married his uncle. So what if 4 different actors play Hamlet’s psychological unravelling and we simply hit the delete button on all other characters. See Hamlet struggle unaided with his demons in German, Swedish, Spanish, French and English. Surtitles in English & French

The Studio Theatre, Rue Waelhem 69A, 1030 Brussels. 

15 to 19 March 2011 – 8pmTickets €15 (€13 Members/Groups/65+)



ITG: The Beauty Queen of Leenane (29 March – 2 April ’11)

The Beauty Queen of Leenane is a 1996 black comedy by Irish playwright Martin McDonagh.

The Beauty Queen of Leenane is a darkly comedic tragedy by Martin McDonagh. Critically acclaimed, it premiered in 1996 as a co-production of the Druid Theatre/Royal Court Theatre moving to New York in 1998 and garnering multiple awards on both sides of the pond.

The play tells the story of two women, mother and daughter, caught up in a claustrophobic relationship. But who is the manipulator and who will win in their struggle for power. The catalyst that will lead to the shocking conclusion is the entrance of a man into the life of the daughter Maureen. Maureen wants the man and the mother, Mag, wants things to remain the same.
