about

Six people arrive in a theatre during rehearsals for a play. But they are not ordinary people. They are the characters of a play that has not yet been written. Trapped inside a traumatic event from which they long 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 ...

Pirandello''s best-known play and one 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?
Pirandello, born in Sicily in 1867, was a well-known novelist and critic before he achieved international recognition as a playwright. His plays include The Rules of the Game, Six Characters, Henry IV and The Man with the Flower in his Mouth. He was awarded a Nobel Prize for Literature in 1934 and died in Rome in 1936.
