As a city theatre, the Schauspiel Leipzig offers diverse stage programmes throughout the year.
The theatre has three performance venues. The programme at the Schauspielhaus theatre focuses on atmospheric double plays, each of which has the same theme and where ancient times and the present are intertwined and reflect each other, as well as on interpretations of epochal classics and critical plays based on questions arising from recent history.
The Diskothek venue is exclusively dedicated to contemporary drama and the sustainable promotion of young writers.
Residenz, located in the Baumwollspinnerei Plagwitz, has also established itself internationally as a co-production and event venue for independently produced performative theatre.
Schauspiel Leipzig regularly holds performances with English surtitles for visitors to the city and international audiences.
