The BGT English Theatre Company, in association with Koler Bierger asbl, will be putting on its latest production the "Coronavirus Chronicles" from 25 to 27 February 2021 at Kinoler cinema in Kahler.
The Coronavirus Chronicles is a collection of fourteen short plays and sketches by Luxembourg-based writers about life in the year of COVID. 2020 was a year that had a profound effect on everyone. During (and since) the lockdown in Luxembourg, everyone has had their frustrations, their losses, their sadness, their fears... but also unexpected moments of light as they discovered new things in the world around them, found new interests and learned to appreciate more the love of friends and family.
Between April and June 2020, Elizabeth Adams from the International School of Luxembourg (ISL) asked writers of all backgrounds to come up with short, five to ten-minute pieces reflecting their experience of the lockdown. The result is the Coronavirus Chronicles: a collection of sketches covering the sorrows of families being separated, the shock of a loved one testing positive for the virus, the fear of catching the virus, the frustrations of working in the health sector... and the ever-present annoyance of working via Zoom. A mixture of scenes and monologues, comic observations and sad reflections, these plays show a cross-section in the life of a year which has changed the whole world.
Directed by Tony and Ferelith Kingston, the show is compiled (and written) by Elizabeth Adams and written by Ester Cela, Ferelith Kingston, Cassandra Köhler, Gracie Savage, Luca Schmit, Josie Shillito and Concepcion Zubizerreta.
Performances are scheduled for Thursday 25 and Friday 26 February at 19:30 and Saturday 27 February at 14:30 (matinée) and 19:30.
