Today the Bydgoszcz dramatic scene is known mainly for the Premiere Festival that takes place each autumn and gathers theatrical groups and critics from all of Poland. The time of the festival is a unique opportunity to get acquainted with contemporary world drama. It is in Bydgoszcz that we have the chance to see still fresh dramas staged by eminent directors whose visions either delight or irritate the audiences. At the Premiere Festival hardly anybody remains indifferent to what happens on stage. The Polish Theatre in Bydgoszcz puts a lot of emphasis on contemporaneity and dialogue with its viewers.
