About us

The Bridgin’ Drama theatre group was established in 2009 by the Bridge, English Language Centre. It was founded by a group of English teachers who share a love for the English language and who are also passionate about theatre.

At the outset, scenic readings were held in the Medical Gardens but this quickly developed into full-scale productions at a regular venue.

We found our forte in adaptations of Slovak theatre classics, which we bring to modern audiences with humour and levity.

By using set texts produced in English, we attempt to develop our students’ interest in our culture, bring them closer to the staples of Slovak literature and, at the same time, improve their language skills.

Bridgin’ Drama has also taken up the challenge of developing tourism in the capital. We are the only theatre in Slovakia which offers tourists an opportunity to learn something about our culture, philosophy and traditions in a language they understand.

We are the theatre that connects; welcome to our world. :)

                                                      I have been following the Bridgin´ Drama theatre group since its very beginning. I admire their immense dedication to theatre, their appetite for cracking the Slovak classics and the spreading of their message in English so that it can reach the very widest audience.

                                                      Their efforts have firmly established the group as a key player in the theatre scene in Bratislava and their relentless enthusiasm in organising the Bridgin´ Europe Festival has cemented Slovakia’s reputation for outstanding drama across Europe.

                                                      Theatre Bridgin´ Drama is „definitely my cup of tea!”
