Six Characters in Search of an Author

Description

By Luigi Pirandello

Directed by Bev Redman

Sign language interpreted performance – Sunday, Dec. 4, 2016

Children under 6 will not be admitted.

Floating onto the stage like apparitions, six characters interrupt a rehearsal at a professional theatre to demonstrate that their “lives” remain suspended by the fictional author who abandoned them before completing his ghastly story. They beg the company to make them into a theater production and create a proper conclusion to their story. When the company takes on the challenge, we discover that fiction may be more real than reality and that the lives of the so-called real actors are just as horrifying as those of the so-called fictional characters they are depicting.

“An inquiry into the nature of identity and reality, Six Characters in Search of an Author (1921), Pirandello’s meta-theatrical masterpiece is also a sort of querulous love letter to the theater. –New York Times
