Lubos Hruza (1933-2008) was a Czech-Norwegian stage designer. Hruza worked in Norway (mainly for The National Theatre) from 1968, and stayed in Norway for approximately 20 years before moving back to The Czech Republic.

Lubos Hruza's works for the stage gained European recognition and his strongly expressive form became a source of inspiration for Norwegian theatre. Among his assignments as a stage designer are a long series of productions of Shakespeare and Ibsen, plus plays of Dostoyevsky, Chekhov, Beckett and Arthur Miller.

Lubos Hruza was given Norwegian Critics' Award for theatre in 1979 for his stage design for John Gabriel Borkman for The National Theatre.

In his speech to Lubos Hruza on behalf of Norwegian Critics' Association Jo Ørjasæter said the following, among other things:

"In this we also include the recognition of what Lubos Hruza has meant for Norwegian stage design during the 1970es. It is developing into a more dynamically acting part of the performance than what we have been used to. And in this development the very Lubos Hruza, as a person and an inspiration, is a source of force."

The Sceneweb database covers productions Lubos Hruza has contributed to in Norwegian theatre.
