This 1921 intellectual comedy contrasts illusion with reality by introducing six individuals to a bare stage occupied by actors in rehearsal. Proclaiming themselves the incomplete creations of an author's imagination, the six demand dialog for the story of their lives. A classic dramatic exploration of the many faces of reality.

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.

Luigi Pirandello oggi e il pi&#249; grande drammaturgo italiano del suo tempo. "Sei Personaggi in cerca d'auttore" esprime l'idea che presentendo le questioni in teatro che il pubblico potesse identificarsi con il teatro diventa piu intellettuale in rispetto con i drammi che semplicemente dare fiction. Ad esempio i personaggi della sua commedia, Pirandello esprime su problemi sociali come il suicidio, la morte, povero e la povert&#224;, il divorzio e la sofferenza che la gente hanno visto attorno al suo giorno e, come abbiamo visto &#232; stato un sacco di esso. Pirandello ha avuto successo perch&#233; lui ha fatto quello che pensavo &#232; giusto, e fare che aveva qualcosa per aiutare nel modo giusto.
