Venue description

Divadlo pod Palmovkou was founded by a group of young theatre enthusiasts in 1948. Throughout its history the theatre has focused on grand stories, staging both classical and contemporary plays as well as pieces by authors of the respective generations. In 2016, Divadlo pod Palmovkou held the first Palm Off Fest, a singularly successful festival of Central European theatre and culture, featuring top-tier groups from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and especially Poland. Some of the best European theatre ensembles came to Prague for this festival, many for the first time. Internationally acclaimed directors Krystian Lupa and Jan Klata personally attended the festival.

Dramatisations are currently categorised into two distinct areas: the Grand stage, with an auditorium capacity of approximately 280 seats, hosts dramatisations of highly acclaimed pieces – powerful stories about pressing issues of our time as well as classical drama and adaptations of world-class literature. Productions presented on the Grand stage feature meticulous staging and powerful writing, concerning both contemporary issues and timeless, ever-relevant ones. In addition to that, there is also a studio stage called Studio Palm Off, with a capacity of roughly 80 seats, focusing chiefly on contemporary works (targeting primarily younger and middle-aged generations) and experimental theatre. Divadlo pod Palmovkou’s repertoire, supervised by chairman and art director Michal Lang, is designed to appeal to a wide range of theatre-goers across generations and deal with subject matters that are – or should be – social, cultural or artistic talking points.
