Summary/Abstract: In the first decade of the communist regime, special attention was paid to drama, reviews of theatrical performances holding, in daily Scanteia, even more space than book reviews. Drama performances, with their orality character, conveyed more easily the message the political authorities wanted the audiences to get. The dramatists who produced plays in the 50's continued choosing themes drawing either on the remote past or on the more recent one, in the latter case the chief idea of the plays being related to "the struggle of the party in the years of underground activity." The challenge however was to write plays inspired by the present.
