American Scott and Swiss Miriam joined Suzi (with Covid Measures in place! If you are wondering why we sound muffled, its because we wore masks!) to discuss their lives in theatre as well as their own bilingual theatre company Betwixt and Between. By having a bilingual play, children and adults alike can enjoy the story in their own language. The two friends discovered, with Basel being such a multi diverse city, that combining the languages and performing in both brings a unique and memorable flair to their plays.

Scott and Miriam wrote, directed and stared in this hit play which showed in 2019 at the Mitte Safe in Basel, and now they are bringing it back for another round at the Theater Arlecchino. Remember the story of Hansel & Gretel? Scott and Miriam bring it to life on stage with a new take on the story - siblings return to their family home and discover a toy box that they used to enjoy together... what stories will they remember from their past?

Even the Cantons in Basel Stadt and Land like the idea - So much so, they provided a discount for tickets! Listen for more details.

And if you are worried about COVID restrictions, you can be sure that Betwixt & Between have taken it seriously! With a maximum number allowed in the audience so guests can spread out, extra room at the bar and other measures in place, this is a Covid friendly production that you can catch for a few shows only!

For schools from Basel-Landschaft: A ticket price of CHF 11.- per ticket.
