Six Characters in Search of an Author by Luigi Pirandello

Book Description

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?

Plays by Luigi Pirandello Plays, Paperback (April 2011)

Preoccupied with the nature of truth and delusion, and treading danger- ously on the borderline between sanity and madness, Pirandello's plays are a daring exploration of human actions and the dark motives lying behind them, and the culmination of the naturalistic school of theatre inaugurated by authors such as Ibsen and Chekhov.

Late Mattia Pascal by Luigi Pirandello Late Mattia Pascal, Paperback (March 2011)

Pascal, a landowner fallen on hard times and trapped in a miserable marriage, runs away and wins money at the gaming tables. Meanwhile a body has been found in the millrace of his village and it is assumed that Pascal has killed himself.
