Intelligent Entertainment and Stimulating Confrontation

The Drachengasse Theater was founded in 1981 by Emmy Werner, has remained true to its founding claim in its eventful history – from “scope for cultural activities of women” to the professional stage with the closest connection to the independent scene: to promote theater makers without excluding theater makers.

Drachengasse Theater

With our own productions we have successfully occupied contemporary positions for years: new author theater, premieres and premieres, explosive in terms of content and formally demanding, but always “accessible” – theater for everyone.

Our theater offers intelligent entertainment and stimulating confrontation. That means: new pieces, controversial topics – exciting and often presented with wit and irony. We are particularly interested in women – whether in content, choice of piece or direction. The combination of new, experimental and proven professionalism has ensured our continued success. The quality and content of the performances have made Drachengasse a safe tip in Vienna’s off-scene.

Theater and Covid-19

In addition to the implementation of the recommended hygiene measures, the following restrictions apply in order to ensure that your visit to the presentation is as safe as possible: Due to the currently valid regulation we have to reduce our seating capacity. As our premises are cramped, masks are compulsory in the foyer and the theater halls, even during performances. In order to be able to provide sufficient space, the evening performances in Bar&Co begin at 19:30. We are also unable to serve drinks. But you don’t have to give up your glass of wine or beer, the Drakon Bar will be happy to serve you.

We ask you to make a reservation so that we can include your contact tracing data when you make your reservation. Reservations are only possible via our webpage. We ask you to refrain from attending a performance if you feel ill. In this case we will of course return your tickets.
