The article considers the dramaturgical ways of artistic implementation of the process of renunciation by Ukrainians of their own national identity during the first decade of Ukrainian Independence. For the European-oriented iconic Ukrainian writer Oleksandr Irvanets, Ukrainians' search for their own new identity was too important, and he encouraged post-Soviet society, including the national elite, to reflect on what prevented Ukrainians from determining the values ​​of their own political nation and country, why they are accepting some pro-Russian or some pro-Western extremes and very often show themselves and the world disrespect for their own country, its rejection as a subject of history. In all his bitter, somewhat ironic, largely anti-utopian plays of the 1990s, there is a call for Ukrainians to break up with the Soviet past, to free themselves from its large and small narratives, to form their own national dignity. In the dramas "A Little Play about Betrayal for an Actress", "Train for Easter", "Recording", "Live", "Liar from Lithuanian Square" O. Irvanets exposes aesthetic myths to Soviet myths and formulates a number of artistically camouflaged questions. related to the civilizational choice of post-totalitarian Ukraine and addressed to readers/listeners/viewers of his works. Issues of totalitarian traumatic experience of Ukrainians and its postcolonial experience, simulated reality and its aesthetic representations, subjectivity/non-subjectivity of Ukrainians at the turn of the XX-XXI centuries, return of Ukrainians to their own language and mental values ​​become important for the writer in his dramatic work. He does not declare these issues directly, but solves them at the level of global conceptual metaphors, symbolic field, author's word formation, anti-utopian modes, associations and allusions, combination of multilingual and multidisciplinary fragments and remarks, ardent discussions, including internal ones.
