The Dnepropetrovsk State Gorky Russian Drama Theatre (the Theatre, for short) is one of the oldest Ukrainian theatres. The building was built by merchant Lutsky in 1847, and now it is a monument of architecture of national importance.

The Theatre was founded in 1927 after the Executive Committee of the City Hall required the establishment of a "seasonal Russian drama theatre with contemporary repertoire." It was based on the Moscow Maly Theatre's company which was then on tour in Dnepropetrovsk.

Vladimir Yermolov-Borozdin, the actor and director of the Maly Theatre, was the first art director of the new theatre. It was he who invented the art conception still existing in the Theatre. Vladimir Kenigson, who later became the People's Artist of the Soviet Union, M. Golovin and N. Polezhaev were his brothers-in-arms and associates.

From 1927 to 1936, almost all plays by Maxim Gorky were staged in the Theatre. This was the reason to name the Theatre after Gorky in 1936.

During the 1941–1945 Great Patriotic War (the portion of the Second World War), the Theatre's company was evacuated to the city of Barnaul and was homed there for three years. The Theatre's building was mine studded and exploded by the Nazi army while drawing in from the city. Later it was reconstructed.

In June of 1944, the Gorky Theatre returned home to Dnepropetrovsk. The company started working intensely. New performances were regularly staged, one by one. In the 1970s and 1980s, two main trends were still supported in the repertoire: contemporary and classics.

In summer of 1997, the time of economic problems, the Theatre was the only one in Ukraine that ventured to go on tour: Nikolayev, Sevastopol, Simferopol, Yevpatoriya. The Theatre's company performed in Crimea for 45 days.

The Theatre's history is closely connected with the names of famous directors such as P. Rudin, A. Sumarokov, I. Kobrinsky, A. Barsegyan, Y. Zubovsky, V. Mazur, and V. Saranchuk.
