Six Characters in Search of an Author by Luigi Pirandello
Directed by Jodi Kanter
Pirandello's masterpiece, a study in illusion and reality, follows a group of characters who try to fashion their life stories into acceptable drama. During a theatrical rehearsal, six characters arrive on stage in a quest for immortal life- all they need is an author. As the company observes the characters, their story becomes more real than any actors could ever make it. Nobel Prize winner Luigi Pirandello’s examination of pretense and theatre has gone on to produce adaptations and spoofs from The Twilight Zone to King of the Hill.
