WSC Avant Bard’s Six Characters in Search of an Author

WSC Avant Bard presents

Six Characters in Search of an Author

by Luigi Pirandello

translated by Carl R. Mueller

Directed by Tom Prewitt

Pull back the curtain to explore the worlds and characters created by words in Six Characters in Search of an Author.  Set during a rehearsal for Luigi Pirandello’s The Rules of the Game, the play finds actors and a director interrupted by orphan characters, seeking to have their story told.  As the actors, director, and characters struggle with reality and theatrical convention, we must ask ourselves, “Is all the world a stage?”
