Director Valéria Schulczová is a member of the middle generation of contemporary Slovak directors and authors. In Slovakia and the Czech Republic, she is perceived as an artist with a broad focus, which is the result of her systematic work in all kinds of theatre and television genres. She mostly directs the plays she wrote herself in tandem with Roman Olekšák (Leni, Doctor Macbeth, Countrymen) or with Iva Volánková (Barbies, (You) Play!). In addition to producing her own texts, Schulczová is focused on contemporary international plays (Blackbird, Carnage, Popcorn, Extremities) and marginally also on world classics (Electra, The Woman of Rome, Enough Stupidity In Every Wise Man) in which she tends to make the content as up-to-date as possible while reflecting the current social and political reality. The themes she works with when writing and directing plays usually reflect the current social situation, or highlight big issues in world history. She has translated a number of plays from English or Czech (David Harrower: Blackbird , Nicholas E. Baehr: Incident, Simon Stephens: Herons, Iva Volánková: Minach, Petr Zelenka: Job Interviews)
