The theatre is housed in the building of the Königsberg New Drama Theatre (Luisen Theatre), which was restored and profoundly overhauled after World War II. The theatre opened its first season, in another building however, in 1947 by Konstantin Simonov's play Lad from Our Town.

The theatre's list of productions includes several dozens of plays of various genres. The theatre also offers a variety of productions directed by leading Russian and foreign stage directors and featuring popular actors who come to the city on performing tours, including within the framework of the Baltic Seasons Arts Festivals.
