This study is aimed at describing the dramatic means of important transitional (in the sense of innovative) Russian dramas, such as Chekhovian, Symbolist (Blok) and Absurdist (D. Charms) Drama. The reduction of action and plot, the 'disturbed' communication, the alienation of man and the conveying of a permanent condition instead of logical-causal events are investigated here. The main emphasis lies on the relationship of the communication/interaction with the prevailing non-action. J. Mukarovsky's speechtypes, R. Jakobson's communication functions, and P. Watzlawick's interaction theory, in combination with Ju. Lotman's plot concept seem to be adequate means to describe this relationship.
