The article introduces and investigates the concept of a "text-transform" based on the novel and short-novel plots of the drama works of the Ukrainian dramatists of the late 19th – early 20th centuries. The text-transform is defined as a message by a different author, with a different structure, different code, composition, and fable, sometimes, with a different system of images. This research paper also looks at the different levels of transformations: dramatization, adaptation, and a based-upon play. The early 20th century sees actualization of the secondary communication strategy, when in the process of transformation of the narrative elements, dramatists exploit the strategy of preservation, shortening, expanding, and changing text blocks. It is determined by the theatre-specific process and pragmatic orientation on the stage manifestation. Meanwhile, expanding and changes are aimed to explicate and intensify the current and preserved relationships between the characters in the text-transforms.
