Six people arrive in a theatre during rehearsals for a play. 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 and his company of actors listen as the characters begin to describe and argue over the key events of their lives…
One of the most extraordinary and mysterious plays of the 20th century, Pirandello’s “Six Characters” speak directly to an age of uncertainty: where do we come from, where are we going, how do we become what we want to be?
A ground-breaking adaptation of the revered, internationally acclaimed stage show by Luigi Pirandello, David Harrower’s new version of Six Characters looking for an Author premiered in London in February 2001 (a huge success in the UK, the USA and right across Europe)’and is now set to take to the Wangaratta stage under the capable direction of our own Steve Thornycroft.
