Description The study presents the escalation of ideologically and politically loaded discussions in both popular and professional press that preceded the passing of new theatre bill in the Czechoslovakia, 1945–48. The author analyses the arguments of the respective politicians, theatre professionals, theatre critics and journalists relating them to current socio-political contexts, i. e. the 1945 liberation of the country from Nazi occupation, elections of 1946, and the governmental crisis in February 1948. The attention is paid to the specificity of the individual media and their employment in communicating ideologies, stressing the fact that almost all of the papers were merely spreading the propaganda of the Communist Party.
