The author presents and analyzes a playwriting in the Slovak-Macedonian cultural relations from the second half of the twentieth century to the present. The main point of the study's scientific ambit was to summarize conscientiously the research conducted in the field of Slovak-Macedonian 'playwriting' relations up to the present, which has received mostly secondary or partial attention until now, most notably by several Slovak, Czech and Macedonian scholars and historians after 1945. In addition to that, the methodological system of the study indicates the role and importance that the received literature and culture plays within the receiving Slovak or Macedonian literary and cultural societies. In that sense, the diachronic continuum of Slovak 'playwriting' translations of Macedonian literature, as well as Macedonian translations of Slovak literature, has been portrayed in this study as a culture-creating phenomenon. Hence, the translations and stage sceneries were assessed in this study also in relation to the social communication, the degree of establishment of the cultural relations, as well as the demands and criteria of the publishing politics in both countries. Within this understanding of the research complex, the translators and stage directors themselves become true moderators between the so called linguistic and cultural communities, who thereby perceive the similarities and differences in the reception of information in both/all socio-cultural areas. The study approaches, among other things, with sincere respect the true value and achievement of the fairly constant interest of the Slovak cultural public on Macedonia and Macedonian literature in the second half of the twentieth century.
