A Comedy in the Making - by Luigi Pirandello
IN ENGLISH (English version by Edward Storer)
A group of actors are preparing to rehearse a Pirandello play. Starting the rehearsal, they are interrupted by the arrival of six characters. The leader of the characters, the father, informs the manager that they are looking for an author. Absurdist tragi-comedy ensues!
Set in Argentina, in the here and now, this 3-act tragi-comedy, first performed 96 years ago, is timeless because it captures much of the essence of both life (such as it is) and theatre, plus how these two go together. yet how dysfunctional our own (and some theatrical) families can be!
