Six characters in search of an author by Luigi Pirandello( Visual )

9 editions published between 1976 and 2002 in English and held by 693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The play's traditional theatrical setting is transposed to a television studio. As a group of actors prepare for a rehearsal of another Pirandello play--The Rules of the Game--the television monitors in the control booth give way to an electrical interference which inexplicably replaces the images of the actors with the images of six mysterious strangers. These are the "six characters" of the title who appear in the flesh in the studio to confront the director and actors with the proposition that their story is more interesting than the play at hand. Each character represents a different point of view as they gradually take over the stage to act out their story."--Container

A portrait of a Jewish family in a Bronx tenement perfectly captures the spirit of the Depression years. Walter Matthau heads the cast of this television re-creation of Clifford Odets' 1935 hit Broadway play, the first full-length work performed on the commercial stage by the legendary Group Theatre. This portrait of a Jewish family in a Bronx tenement perfectly captures the spirit of the Depression years and is suffused with details of character and place that combine to be affecting even now. The Bergers, burdened by financial difficulties, have taken in a border -- Moe Axelrod (Matthau) -- who lost a leg in World War I. Cynical and outspoken, Moe adds a spark to the somewhat accepting lives of the Bergers. The family fights to survive on $16 a week while the intellectual, Marxist-leaning grandfather (brilliantly played by famed Yiddish theatre star, Leo Fuchs) tries futilely to spur his family to action with the injunction, "Awake and sing, ye that dwell in the dust" (Isaiah 26:19)
