In distinction from its previous editions, this issue of Polish Theatre Journalcomprises three subjects, not just one.

First, the issue presents an extensive section of articles concerning the latest generation of Polish theatre: artists in their thirties and forties who have been leaving a distinctive mark on theatre in Poland over recent seasons, bringing to the table new sensibilities and new working strategies.
