The Grum Award is the most prestigious Slovene award for the best new Slovenian play. The award is presented on the occasion of the annual Week of Slovenian Drama at the Prešeren Theatre Kranj. Since 1979, all Slovene theatres and non-permanent theatre groups can nominate one or more performances based on an original Slovene drama text for the award. The recipient of the award is selected by a jury, which also awards the Grün-Filipič Award for achievement in dramaturgy.

The awarded plays in English

On the occasion of the 40th Week of Slovenian Drama, the Prešeren Theatre Kranj and the Zelolepo Publishing House launched a publication with original texts and translations of the awarded plays in the English language. The 2009 edition included texts by playwrights and dramaturgs Simona Semenič and Žanina Mirčevska and their plays [] and The End of the Atlas [Konec atlasa] respectively, while the 2010 edition brought the texts by the Grum Award recipients Ivo Prijatelj, Simona Semenič and Ivo Svetina.

Slavko Grum

The award is named after the Slovene playwright and doctor Slavko Grum (1901–1949), the author of the play An Event in the Town of Goga [Dogodek v mestu Gogi] (published 1930), dealing with crucial aspects of Slovene identity. Grum's play has strongly marked the development of Slovene playwriting.
