An author in his contribution observes that Arthur Miller's stagings were performed in Slovakia each time when a new author's text appeared, and subsequently was produced in the various Slovak professional theatres. Miller's play 'Po pade' (1964) ( After the Fall ) was performed in Slovakia as the European opening. For P. Haspra, a dramatic definition of the new American drama was convenient. A young theatrical critic and historian M. Timko is dealing in detail with two Haspra's rehearsals of the play 'Cena' (The Price). The impact of Haspra's first staging of Miller's 'Cena' (The Price) was very heuristic and inspirative in the Slovak theatrical art context, extending the scale of histrionic mouldable devices of all actors who participated in performing. When confronting the first staging of 'Cena' (the Price), the second one seemed as numb and deaf, incomplete, building on extensiveness, outerness, lacking own substance - the contents. The director in the second staging waived of analyticism, embedding for the extensive outerior devices.
