In the play of the introductory drama-radio form of the dialogue between the young female playwright and the young male director, it enters the field of exploring the contemporary playwriting of the youngest generation and its current position. For the starting point of the topical-structural analysis of concrete plays, the author takes the call for the Slavko Grum Award for Young Playwright and dedicates her attention to its recipients up to the year 2018. As a counterpoint, she presents various educational, staging or publication initiatives that open the doors for young playwrights. Through a short review of playwrights and their texts, the contribution offers an insight into the new generation of contemporary playwriting; by treating the topics, styles and forms that are popular among playwrights, the article aims to close the gap in the area of reflective analysis.
