Six Characters in Search of an Author (Headlong version)

By Luigi Pirandello Adapted by Rupert Goold and Ben Power

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£6.49

Pirandello's classic play updated for the twenty-first century.

Blurring the border between fiction and life, between the stage and the world outside, Six Characters in Search of an Author exploded onto the stage in 1921 as one of the unique achievements of twentieth-century drama.

Updated and recontextualised in this vertiginous new version, it becomes a dark parable for a media-obsessed age and an exhilarating exploration of how we define art, ourselves and ‘reality’ in the twenty-first century.
