Overview

"Blurring the border between fiction and life, between the stage and the world outside, Six Characters in search of an Author exploded onto the stage in 1921 as one of the unique achievements of twentieth-century drama." "Updated and recontextualised in this vertiginous new version by Rupert Goold and Ben Power, it becomes a dark parable for a media-obsessed age and an exhilarating exploration of how we define art, ourselves and 'reality' in the twenty-first century." This version premiered in 2008 at the Minerva Theatre, Chichester, in a co-production with Headlong Theatre, directed by Rupert Goold.

Editorial Reviews

New York Times
Ingenious...a striking re-imagining of Six Characters that heightens the play's theatricality even as it grounds it in the mundane.... It keeps faith with Pirandello's case for the peculiarly irresistible power of illusion.
