Playwriting festival

Premiere 29/04/2020


The FREISPIEL playwriting festival enters its next season. After a brilliant start in March 2019 at the sold-out Salzburg State Theatre with a playwriting contest and five world premieres, the Salzburg State Theatre again dedicates itself to a festival of new theatrical texts.

The FREIRAUM programme offers an opportunity to encounter new theatre texts created in the here and now, forging a new alliance between authors, theatre makers and audiences. Authors are invited to write and rehearse plays in workshops with the acting ensemble – in the short time span of a few days. The audience can observe the creative process and comment on it after the performance.
