History edit

There has been a theatre on the site since 1865 but the current theatre company only dates to August 1949, when under the direction of the minister for Culture the current troupe took form. Until 1992 the Libeň theatre bore the name of the S. K. Neumann Theatre, but with the fall of communism the theatre took its current name.
