About the project

Digital library of the Ukrainian drama translations serves to promote the national dramaturgy worldwide, the successful communication between the contemporary Ukrainian authors and theatres around the world, and to foster new creative partnerships.

Convenient search engine will help you find plays of the Ukrainian playwrights translated into the language of your choice, and generate the search by genre, period of creation, subject, text size, number of characters, etc.

Each text in the library has an ID card, a synopsis and information about the author and the translator in English.

Here you will be able to read big fragments but the entire text for reading, commercial or non-commercial use, can be obtained from the copyright holders whose contacts can be found on the first page of the play and in the authors’ profiles. 

The Library is founded by the Ukrainian Institute in partnership with Worldwide Readings Project and Birkbeck Center for Contemporary Theater. It is based on the global initiative funds of the Worldwide Readings Project and the Ukrainian Institute program Transmission.ua: drama on the move.

Website is created with the financial support of the International Relief Fund of the Federal Foreign Office and Goethe-Institut Ukraine within framework of the “Theatrical Windows. Work in Progress” – a project implemented by the NGO “Theatre na Zhukah”. Coordinating partner – platform UkrDramaHub.

Open structure promotes continuous renewal of the Library’s funds. Ukrainian playwrights are welcome to submit the translations of their plays via this form

Prior to publishing on the Website, quality of translations will be verified by the Expert Council: Lydia Nagel (German), Elli Salo (Finnish, Swedish, Slovak), Molly Flynn (English), Miloslav Juráni (Slovak), Iulia Popovici (Romanian) and Anna Korzeniowska-Bihun (Polish).
