by Luigi Pirandello, modern translation by David Harrower, directed by Anna Migliarisi.
Six Characters Looking for an Author is a timeless exploration of creativity and the deceptive power of appearances. Set in a theatre in Rome on the brink of Fascism, an acting company is rehearsing a strange new play by Luigi Pirandello. Six characters walk into the theatre unannounced seeking an author to complete their story because they’ve been abandoned by their author in mid-action. The director and his company of actors agree to play out the characters’ drama, but can they settle on the truth of things?
