Actors and characters, reality and illusion, soon collide.

Overview

Pirandello’s Nobel Prize-winning play takes on a disturbing immediacy in the hands of innovative French director Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota and his world-class ensemble.

Interrupting a theatre company in the midst of rehearsals, a dysfunctional family makes the strangest of claims: they are unfinished characters in need of a new author who will complete their story, freeing them from eternal limbo. Intrigued, the director agrees to turn their troubling tale into a drama but as a performance of sorts unfolds, actors and characters, reality and illusion, soon collide.

This dream-like production releases the mystery, chaos and darkness at the heart of Pirandello’s absurdist classic. The 14-strong cast brings a fiery dynamism to the surreal interplay between two tribes of hopelessly divided human beings.
