SCHÄXPIR ranks among the most important festivals in the area of theatre for a young audience. The unusual spelling can be interpreted as a reference to the famous William Shakespeare. New and extraordinary approaches mark the programme; thereby the festival in Austria tries to remain faithful to its principle of showing only demanding and high-quality productions. For ten days during this summer, Linz will turn into the ultimate hotspot to be for all theatre lovers. The international theatre festival takes place between 25th June and 4th July and provides an innovative and courageous programme for young people and those who are young at heart.
