Summary/Abstract: The text is part of a larger research which pertains to the study of the problems of acting in national dramaturgy during the 20th century in Bulgaria. The main focus is on the first performances of Bulgarian plays on the stage of the National Theatre in Sofia between the two world wars. A special accent is put on the already established as classical dramas of St. L. Kostov, Y. Yovkov, R. Stoyanov, G. Raichev and others. Although Bulgarian drama of that period wasin a way domestic and petty bourgeois the actors created some of their best characters in national plays. According to the preserved evidences the first stage interpretations of Golemanov, Albena, Boryana, Masters, Deer’s Kingdom left a lasting imprint into the minds of the audience with the actor’s incarnations into the images as a result of the meetingbetween performers and the audience within the overall theatrical process. The national drama, written “on the backs of the actors”, provided many opportunities to contemporaries for empathy and unforgettable moments.
