The performances are in Ukrainian, but the actors are amazing and very professional.You can watch the plays both on a big and small scenes. The repertour includes both historical performances and modern ones. It's the best Ukrainian theatre I've ever been.

I cannot say I'm very familiar with this theatre's repertoire but I saw a one play. That was not the best I saw but not the worse.
