ATC: The Crucible (7th-11th of March)

ATC presents Arthur Miller’s classic American drama
Directed by Christopher Flores

7 – 11 March, 20:00
Viage Theatre, Grand Casino Brussels
Boulevard Anspach 30

Book TICKETS here

Arthur Miller’s ‘The Crucible’ is a powerful and disturbing fictionalized account of the Salem Witch Trials that took place in 17th century Massachusetts.

When a young girl and her friends begin to accuse people of witchcraft, an incendiary blend of rigid religious views, superstition, and personal grudges kindles a community’s mass hysteria.

The play will be performed five times, from 7 to 11 March at the Viage Thatre, Grand Casino Brussels.

ITG: Waiting for Godot (6-7,10-14th Oct 2017)

Warehouse Studio Theatre

Director: Tim Myers

ALL performances are now SOLD OUT.
The waiting list is over-subscribed, there is no point adding more names. Sorry!

All is not lost…not yet at least…

People get delayed at work, a babysitter cancels, or ticket holders arrive late because they strangely expect they will find parking but don’t (parking is nearly impossible in the area).

You can turn up at the theatre, doors open at 7:30pm, you can wait in the bar area, and any seats not taken by curtain up (we don’t actually have a curtain!) will be reallocated. No promises, but if you don’t try, you won’t see it, and that’ll be that.

The Warehouse Studio Theatre, 69a Waelhemstraat, Schaerbeek.

Tickets available here (€15)


It’s 1904. Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso – both in their twenties, neither of them yet famous – spend an evening at a bar called the Lapin Agile in Montmartre, Paris.

When two of the most inspired minds of the 20th century meet by chance, sparks fly. But is it genius igniting or egos flaring when an artist and a scientist – each destined to revolutionize an era – square off and size each other up? Continue reading
