Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This 1921 intellectual comedy contrasts illusion with reality by introducing 6 individuals to a bare stage occupied by actors in rehearsal. Proclaiming themselves the incomplete creations of an author's imagination, the 6 demand dialog for the story of their lives. A classic dramatic exploration of the many faces of reality. Publisher's Note.

Synopsis:

Six individuals, the incomplete creations of an author's imagination, demand dialogue for their story. This open-ended drama excited both controversy and acclaim at its 1921 premiere and remains a milestone in modern theater.

Synopsis:

Luigi Pirandello's masterpiece, "Six Characters in Search of an Author", presents the playwright's views about the isolation of the individual from society and from himself. This play within a play chronicles six characters as they seek an author to tell their story, and to present their real lives on stage. But do their realities make better tales than fiction?
