ECC: The Father (23-27 October 2018)

ECC is proud to present The Father, written by Florian Zeller, translated by Christopher Hampton, and directed by Heli Pärna, at the Warehouse Studio Theatre from October 23-27, 2018.

What is actually going on in this flat? And who are these people coming in and out of it? And is it even his flat or is he in someone else’s home? And if so, how did he get here?

According to the author, Florian Zeller, The Father is a puzzle with a missing piece and no one ever knows which piece it is”. The protagonist, André who is living with his adult daughter Anne, is looking for people to tell him the truth in an ever changing world while trying to make sense of his environment despite the reigning chaos around him. This play is a glimpse into the world of someone with dementia – an illness that leads quite a silent existence, perhaps because many people think, and even more so, hope, that it will never affect them.

A €2 donation will be made to Alzheimer Europe Foundation from each ticket sold. You can visit their website to learn more about the work and research that they do www.alzheimer-europe.org

Tickets are €15 and are available from www.thelittleboxoffice.com/ecc

ECC Panto: Robin Hood & the Babes in the Wood (18-20 January, 2019)

The journey to Sherwood Forest has begun. ECC are proud to present Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood which will be performed in Auderghem Cultural Centre from January 18-20, 2019.

This hilarious never-ever-before-seen version of the traditional tale promises to be one of the most spectacular family pantomimes performed on the Brussels stage.

The evil Sheriff of Nottingham hatches a wicked plan to marry Maid Marian for her money. But first he has to get rid of the Babes – Maid Marian’s Belgian cousins. It’s down to our most famous outlaw Robin Hood to save the day, with a little help from his Merry Men, his trusty steed and the lovely Maid Marian.

Enjoy plenty of songs, dances, stunning scenery, special effects and superb costumes…topped off by all-round slapstick and silliness. Festive entertainment does not come any better!

Tickets are €16 for adults, €12 for children and are available from www.thelittleboxoffice.com/ecc.

Last year’s panto was over 90% sold out, so book early to avoid disappointment!
