It also includes annotated editions of two newly discovered manuscripts of dramatic texts by travelling comedian troupes. It focuses on the dramatist, theatre director and actor Johann Georg Gettner (?–1696), a native of Mikulov and a leading figure of the the comedian troupe associated with the House of Eggenberg in Český Krumlov (Krumau).
