Alina Nelega offers a playwright's perspective on the development of playwriting in post-communist Romania. She details the challenges faced by new playwrights in a primarily visual, director-driven theatrical culture, and discusses the history of programs like Dramafest and dramAcum, designed to foster new writing. Particular attention is paid to writers Gianina Carbinariu and Stefan Peca.
