Slovak drama after year 1900, by many her factors, belongs to the stream of a new Europe drama or 'in-year-face' of drama. This new wave of writing is not identical with any previous new waves in dramatic writing. For that reason is not possible assess her from position previous periods. The affinity with European context of drama development in 90th years, we mostly see in enlargement of original dramatic work, in experiments, in using the same structural and expressional means. Then we see it in rude, vulgar language of drama and in a new form of the dialogues (short, almost movie dialogues), in her new cruel sensitization (full of violence, sex and obscenity), in political undercurrent and in new establish themes like for example - crisis of masculinity, corruption of the values, hebetation of feelings ( typical is absence ethical categories good - bad). Slovak drama after year 1900 is not always strong in plot and characters (characterization), but her strength is in urgency of language and in establishing of the relevant themes. Simile, like in other European countries, place for the production of such a drama became the small theatre places also in our country.
