MGL Library Book Collection is one of oldest editions specialising in theatre theory and research in Europe. Since its constitution in 1958, the Ljubljana City Theatre (MGL) has published over 150 titles, including theoretical works by Slovene dramaturgs and theatre practitioners as well as translations of essential texts on theatre research and history. The collection is run by Ljubljana City Theatre (MGL) and since 2007 edited by the dramaturg Petra Pogorevc.


The MGL Library Book Collection publishes original theoretical works by Slovene theatre researchers and practitioners, including authors such as Dušan Moravec, Bratko Kreft, Josip Vidmar, Ferdo Delak, Taras Kermauner, Draga Ahačič, Bojan Štih, Rudi Šeligo, Dušan Jovanović, Vasja Predan, Blaž Lukan, Tomaž Toporišič, Nebojša Pop-Tasič, etc. In addition, since its inception the collection has focused on the introduction of fundamental theatre theory works into the Slovene space, publishing translations of classical authors, such as Peter Brook, Antonin Artaud, Edward Gordon Craig, Jerzy Grotowski, Constantin Stanislavsky, Eugene Ionesco, Phyllis Hartnoll, Aleks Sierz, Marvin Carlson, and Patrice Pavis.

Recently, the collection aims to cover titles that tackle the heterogeneity and interdisciplinarity of contemporary theatre practices and reflect their wider cultural and social context. Thus, it has published a selection of interviews from Josette Féral's trilogy Mise en scene et jeu de l'acteur [Režija in igra] (2008) and André Lepecki's Exhausting Dance: Performance and the Politics of Movement [Izčrpavajoči ples: uprizarjanje in politika giba] (2009).
