Drama Classics: The World's Great Plays at a Great Little Price

Luigi Pirandello's 1921 play about the nature of theatre and the problems of theatricality, in which six characters, whose author has abandoned them mid-process, turn up at a rehearsal and demand to be played by the actors present in order to resolve their tragedy and become 'real'.

This edition of Six Characters in Search of an Author, in the Nick Hern Books Drama Classics series, is translated and introduced by Stephen Mulrine.
