Research of theatre repertoire utilises the so-called list of production, which summarises information about the life of the production from the first to the last performance, acquired from playbills and other period sources and from literature, as a work aid. Its final form is the basis for entering data into a database program, which can be used to put together lists of repertoires of individual theatres, including registers of creators and producers. This article explains the methodological issues complicating the project to transfer the living organism called “a theatre production” into database columns.
