Hastings College Department of Theatre Arts presents

Six Characters in Search of an Author

By Luigi Pirandello

An Italian play said to be one of the most extraordinary and mysterious plays of the 20th century, “Six Characters in Search of an Author” speaks directly to an age of uncertainty: where do we come from, where are we going, how do we become what and who we want to be? Six people, very strange people, interrupt a theatre rehearsal. Trapped inside a traumatic event from which they long to escape, they are characters who desperately need a writer to complete their story and release them.
