We’re back and excited to announce the new play we’re performing in 2023: a tricky murder mystery The Plot, Like Gravy, Thickens, written by Billy St. John. The murder of the villainous millionaire Edward Worthington wreaks havoc on his family and close associates, though perhaps not for the reasons one might expect. The case is investigated by a slick detective who, when not breaking the fourth wall, is busy finding out who had the most motive to kill Mr. Worthington. Was it the bitter ex-wife? His dubious lawyer? Or maybe his sexy secretary? Find out at our performances in Spring!


We are UZH and ETH’s devastatingly charming, fully student-run, no-drama drama club.

We meet regularly throughout the year to prepare our productions and cultivate our passion for both the performing arts and everything that goes on backstage—and to just have fun! [read more]
