Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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?

Synopsis:

Pirandello's masterpiece, a study in illusion and reality, follows a group of characters who try to fashion their fife stories into acceptable drama. Mr. Brustein's new rendering is accessible, contemporary, and highly speakable while retaining the flavor of the Italian original.
