Theatre creativity in Nova Gorica started in 1955 when the semi-professional Gorica (City) Theatre was established. The theatre became fully professional in 1969 and changed its name to Primorsko dramsko gledališče. Between 1972 and 1991 the theatre organized the festival Gorica Meeting of Small Stages (later Alpe Adria Theatre Meeting), which greatly influenced the development of the theatre and its affirmation in the national and international theatre circles. In 1994, a new theatre building with modern stage equipment was built and in 2004 the theatre was declared an institution of national importance and is now fully subsidised by the state. It also changed its name to Slovensko narodno gledališče Nova Gorica (Slovene National Theatre Nova Gorica).
