The playbill collection of The University and National Library of Debrecen is a valuable source of the intellectual life and theatre history of an Eastern Hungarian town in the second half of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century.

The 12600 items consistently covering the theatre seasons of the period shed light on the part the theatre played in the cultural life and connections of the town, the literary taste and habit of entertainment of the citizens.
