The hugely popular TRUE STORY NIGHTS from Vienna Storytelling Collective is coming to Rote Bar at Volkstheater. Since April 2022 exciting professional storytellers have been playing to full houses in Vienna, with surprising, moving, hilarious and sometimes shockingly true stories. BBC drama/comedy producer and host Turan Ali welcomes you to an exciting evening with eight gripping, high quality true stories – some from Vienna – from a different set of different storytellers per show, including novelists, comedians, radio, TV and film professionals, screenplay writers, performance poets and theatre-makers. It will feel like being the priest at a confessional… except you don’t need to keep it all a secret!

What the audience have said:
“Exhilarating”, “A brilliant evening every time”, “Funny and very moving”, “Incredible stories!”

Join us on October 12th for our amazing line up:

Tamara Mascara is one of the most famous drag queens in Austria. She is also a celebrated DJ and an icon on the scene for her wild parties and performances. Austria knows her from appearing in the ORF show classic Dancing Stars and her colourful past means she has many amazing stories to tell.
