Six Characters in Search of an Author
We are more than real. We are unchanging, immutable, fixed. We are what we have been made to be.
Theatre Paradok presents a new adaptation of Luigi Pirandello's classic, “Six Characters in Search of an Author”.
In a darkened auditorium, a theatre company is rehearsing a play. Their piece, a theatrical docudrama on euthanasia, relies entirely on its young, terminally ill protagonist – whose parents have just withdrawn him from the performance.
As their production falls apart and tensions rise, six characters appear, seeking to have their story told. Discarded by their author, these figures are more than fiction. They blur the lines between truth and the pretend, questioning how real drama can ever be.
Theatre Paradok's production is based on an original adaptation by Ben Power and Rupert Goold.
