Six Characters in Search of an Author

Luigi Pirandello

Directed by Stacy Keach

As a group of actors prepare for a rehearsal, six mysterious strangers challenge the company with the proposition that their story is more interesting than the play at hand. As each character's story begins to unfold, fact and fiction both unravel as the director loses sight of what is acting and what is real.
