(First indications of changes in an artistic orientation of the Slovak post-war theatrical art in recollections of a participant) During the period between 1950s and 60s also the Slovak theatrical culture was trying to adjust to oppressive heritage of schematise and non-creative application of descriptive-realistic theatrical dogmas. In the time when a group of young theatre critics was considering the possibility of criticising the lurking stage style of a certain part of the Slovak National Theatre drama repertoire, this troupe took part in an extremely successful trip to the Soviet Union. Following favourable international acceptance thus significantly affected critical reservations against the artistic programme of the Slovak National Theatre, and entirely eliminated some of then registered contributions.
