Six Characters in Search of an Author

Theatre Paradok are proud to present our Spring 2013 production


Six Characters in Search of an Author

by Luigi Pirandello

Adapted by Ben Power and Rupert Goold, re-adapted for the Edinburgh stage by Joseph Cunningham and Thomas Louis

We are more than real. We are unchanging, immutable, fixed. We are what we have been made to be.

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theatrical docudrama on euthanasia, relies entirely on its young, terminally ill protagonist – whose parents have just withdrawn him from the performance.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.

26 – 30 March, Adam House Theatre, Edinburgh
