Six Characters in Search of an Author
by Luigi Pirandello
When an uninvited cast of characters takes a play rehearsal hostage, the producer, actors and audience alike are confronted with reality versus illusion. Provocative, and in turns humorous and horrific, the story builds to a shocking climax. This revolutionary play within a play forces us to examine our own identity, our character, in a world where reality challenges and changes us by the minute.
