Six Characters in Search of an Author archiveSix characters appear on a stage that is being used for the rehearsal of a Pirandello play. They ask the Stage Manager for help. Created and then discarded by an author, they seek another author to cast them in a play and let them play out their roles. A group of actors steps forward to portray the lives that the six characters have just described, but when they do so the characters object to their re-enactment, claiming that it distorts the truth. When one of the characters commits suicide, the rest of the characters mourn his death while the actors insist nervously that it is only make believe. Which is it? And how will the situation be resolved? A new version by Rupert Goold and Ben Power. 2 hours 20 minutes
Performers Ian McDiarmid (The Father), Noma Dumezweni (The Producer), Eleanor David (Mother), John Mackay (Executive), Jamie Bower, Dyfan Dwyfor, Christine Entwisle, Denise Gough, Jake Harders, Jeremy Joyce, Freya Parker, Robin Pearce, Stephen Crane (understudy for The Father - some dates).
