Iveta Škripková is known primarily as a director of the At the Crossroads Puppet Theatre in Banská Bystrica, as a director and founder of the first Slovak feminist theatre Studio TWIGA (Theatre - Women - Improvisation - Gender - Action), and the director of the International Theatre Festival Puppetry Bystrica. The study focuses on the work of Iveta Škripková - playwright, which is numerous but underestimated and little known. Her concept of gender-sensitive (or gender-oriented) "gynodrama" significantly extends the thematic and philosophical scope of the contemporary Slovak drama, adding new aesthetic instruments to express the women's experience in the field of drama. Her plays of experimental nature are linked to the work of Jana Juráňová and intentionally follow a line of feminist drama in Slovakia. Slovak theatre and theatre criticism face an urgent task to adopt a feminist discourse and use it as an instrument for analysis of theatre and drama.
