Six Characters in Search of an Author
Ivan R. Dee, 1998 - Drama - 83 pages
Pirandello's masterpiece, a study in illusion and reality, follows a group of characters who try to fashion their life stories into acceptable drama. The play's intricate structure permits an elaborate system of ideas to coexist with a striking theatricality. Robert Brustein's new and highly acclaimed rendering is accessible, contemporary, and speakable while retaining the flavor of the Italian original.
