The Week of Slovenian Drama

March - April 2024
Prešeren Theatre Kranj

27 March – 7 April 2023

Like every year, Kranj (Prešeren Theatre Kranj) will host the 53rd Week of Slovenian Drama (27 March – 7 April 2023). We will be able to see the best drama theatre productions of the past year and there will be many round table discussions, drama writing workshops etc.

It is the main goal of this festival to encourage theatres to perform dramatic texts by Slovenian authors, to encourage authors themselves and also people who promote Slovenian theatre abroad or wish to stage a performance of such original dramatic texts in their own country.

Rich Programme and Prestigious Awards

The local Prešeren Theatre is the main organizer of this festival, supported by the Municipality of Kranj, the Ministry of Culture, as well as by theatres and theatre institutes from Slovenia and abroad. Drama writing workshops, lead by accomplished dramatists and playwrights from all over the world, are an inspiration for new texts. An important contribution are also play readings and presentations of nominated theatre shows, as well as the cooperation with the Theatre and Film Academy and the Faculty of Arts.
