Description

In Pirandello's modern classic, premiered in Rome in 1921, six strangers turn up in a rehearsal room and demand that their story be acted out by the assembled company. As the actors perform, the increasingly gruesome story becomes frighteningly real..."Six Characters in Search of an Author" famously blurs the border between fiction and life, between the stage and the world outside. This new version from the mightily successful "Headlong Theatre" updates and recontextualises it into a dark parable for a media-obsessed age and an exhilarating exploration what we call 'reality' in the 21st century.
