Abstract. This article gives an overview of recent institutional and aesthetic developments in Estonian theatre, exposing their historical context where necessary. Estonia has preserved its network of professional theatres, but many independent theatres and groups have broadened the notion of theatre. State support to performing arts has increased considerably year-by-year. The exploration of Estonian cultural history has become a fashionable subject. The younger generation of theatre makers is interested in documentary theatre, but the most prominent new forms of theatre are stand-up and mono comedies.
Keywords. Estonian theatre, theatre system, documentary drama, stand-up, NO99
