Summary/Abstract: The article provides general remarks on the new type of drama in Russian literature. Generally, artists tend to stress individual nature of their works, and therefore they withdraw from being labeled or associated with particular trends. Among many contemporary playwrights there are some highly original ones, who have already become recognized and are classified as Russian postmodern classic artists. Further, the article discusses their opinions on the craft of dramatic writing.
