PLAYREADING: MOLLY SWEENEY, written by Brian Friel and directed by Pamela Jenkins

“Have you ever wondered what it might be like to be blind and then have your sight suddenly restored? Have you ever wondered how frightening this might be?”

The writing of this eloquent sensual play, like all Brian Friel’s work, is so rich in texture and imagery that I am sure will linger on in your mind for a long time. It is a rare gem that is in perfect tune with Brian Friel’s own bittersweet, melancholic world.

Welcome!

The Village Players is an English language theatre group based in Lausanne, Switzerland. We put on two theatrical productions a year for the public in venues in the Lausanne area. We also have a wide variety of monthly events for members at our clubhouse at the Centre Pluriculturel d’Ouchy in the heart of Lausanne. For a brief history of The Village Players, click here.

If you would like to join the Village Players, your best option is to come to one of our events or productions and ask to speak to one of the committee members. You can see a list of all scheduled events on the right. Alternatively, feel free to contact us.

Our last production -THE HOBBIT – written and directed by Victoria Baumgartner and Daniel Gardini was a tremendous success!  We will shortly be posting some photos on the site. 

The playreading CAT’S CRADLE, directed by Adrienne Hahne, was a most enjoyable “who dunnit” with a surprising twist at the end.
