About us

The drama company is the longest-running company within the DJKT’s four-company theatre community and has always been pivotal to the Pilsen drama scene. Throughout its existence, a large number of acting and directing personalities passed through, significantly influencing the development of the entire Czech theatre culture. It is often said that Pilsen, after Prague, is the second most important Czech theatre scene, especially in the area of drama.

The current drama company, since 2019 under the artistic direction of the company member, Apolena Veldová, continues to develop. It keeps the broad spectrum of the repertory while placing emphasis on its ambitious and educative impact, not only on the fun factor. It strives to develop the audience's ability to perceive various staging methods and forms – by consciously working with their audiences in developing production plans. In addition, the topicality of the portrayed themes and the socio-political and social impact of the presented plays are absolutely essential for the contemporary drama production plan. We want the Pilsen drama not only to entertain its audience, but to make them think together – through theatre production – about the current world and our shared life in it. That's why we want to bring to the stage precisely those topics that we believe can affect us all and can be absolutely essential for our direction in life. Therefore, we are not interested only in a high-quality artistic or theatrical form, but to no less extent in its impact on society as a whole. By sharing it together; especially on the Author – Director – Performer – Spectator line.

 

The drama company also loves to prepare numerous special projects, such as stage readings or other specialized evenings, including one-off events. For the drama company, these activities are a regular part of their work and they support the said search for social contexts through theatre production. The DJKT’s drama company also organizes personal meetings with its audience in the pre-premiere series, Meeting with Drama, or the traditional literary competition, The Literary Café. The members of the drama company also train a new generation of actors in the Theatre Drama Workshop (TDW). Its members are also cast in our productions.
