Six Characters in Search of an Author (Methuen Student Editions)by Luigi Pirandello

Six people arrive in a theatre during rehearsals for a play. But they

to escape, they desperately need a writer to complete their story and
release them. Intrigued by their situation, the director invites them
to act out the key events of their lives

of the most extraordinary and mysterious plays of the 20th century, Six
Characters speaks directly to an age of uncertainty: where do we come
from, where are we going, how do we become what we want to be?
