Six Characters in Search of an Author Paperback

Edited by Joseph Farrell

Part of the Student Editions series



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?
