For 20 years the Modjeska Theatre in Legnica has been one of the most acclaimed and recognizable theatres in Poland. It participates in all major Polish theatre festivals, winning prestigious awards. The theatre tours its productions abroad, not only to Europe (Germany, Hungary, Great Britain etc.) but also in the USA, Russia, Turkey and Argentina. In 2016 the theatre in cooperation with The National Macedonian Theatre in Skopje produced The Broken Odyssey, the play about dramatic moments in the joint history of Poles and Macedonians, presented on major stages of both countries. The Modjeska Theatre specializes in producing “true stories in true places” which often involves spaces quite unusual for the theatre, and includes disused factory halls and ruined cinemas. The tales frequently concern Legnica and Lower Silesia, thus contributing to the identity of the city and the region.

The theatre also presents the plays of William Shakespeare, classical Polish and European playwrights and plays written especially for the stage in Legnica. The most noteworthy among the productions of  the Modjeska Theatre have been televised and seen by the whole country. The artists of the Modjeska Theatre organize cultural and social events, including concerts, meetings with artists, publishing theatre books and CDs with the theatre music etc. In 2007 and 2009 the theatre, by inviting theatre groups from abroad (USA and Georgia among others), organized  The Miasto/City International Theatre Festival, recognized as the most interesting cultural event of the region. Jacek Głomb, the prolific director of the Modjeska Theatre, has won a lot of awards for his work on the stage (about 60 theatre plays) and community work, including the European Citizens’ Prize from the European Parliament (2013).
