Last Tango in St. Stephan and Last Panto in Bolligen

written by: 
David Tristram
directed by: 
Bruce Caldwell

Upstage present their interpretation of two one-act plays by David Tristam: Last Tango in St. Stephan and Last Panto in Bolligen

An amateur dramatic society finds itself in trouble as membership has dwindled to four, the audiences aren’t much bigger – and if they don’t come up with some rent money soon, it’s curtains for all. These two delightful, somewhat self-deprecating comedies pay homage to the long history of Upstage and the struggle to stay alive in a world that no longer appreciates “quality” theatre. 


Welcome to Upstage:

Berne's English-language Amateur Theatre Group

Located in beautiful Berne, Switzerland, Upstage staged their first production in 1982. Since then our lively theatre group has staged over 75 productions and has become a permanent part of the Bernese theatre scene. Each year we put on an autumn and a spring production at the Theater am Käfigturm. Throughout the year we hold regular play readings and workshops. All dates and venues are publicized on this website and are also published on our Facebook page.

Each production requires the participation of many volunteers both onstage and behind the scenes. If you are interested in joining us, Upstage offers a wide range of opportunities to participate in English-language theatre productions. We might have something just right for you!
