Plays are beautiful to watch and fun to read. Especially when you read them together. That's why theater maker Brecht Hermans and Leeszaal West founded a theater reading club in 2022 called 'The Cherry Orchard in Leeszaal West'.


In 2023, we will be reading theater at 3 locations: in Rotterdam North, South and West.

We sit around the table together and read excerpts from one play at a time. A different play each time, so it's okay if you miss a meeting.

Everyone welcome.
1 or 10 times - as much as you can and want.
Good and not so good readers welcome.
No experience with theater required.
