The paper discusses three plays written between 1945 and 1948: 'Dvaja' (The Two, 1945) by Julius Barc-Ivan, 'Posledna prekazka' (The Last Obstacle, 1946) by Stefan Kralik, and 'Povichrica' (The Gale, 1948) by less known Julius Alexej Illes. All three plays deal with passion, guilt and chances to reach reconciliation. In Illes' play, marked by the Christian perception, divine law rules in the universe, and human beings are able to redeem themselves. His concept of the man emphasizes the archaic and archetypal elements. In Barc's play, author's religious worldview is not expressed directly. However, the play opens a gulf between the human world and the ideal realm void of weaknesses and passions. Kralik focuses on presenting the modern, secular world, and investigates the conditions of human happiness in the interpersonal relations.
