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

9 editions published between 1976 and 2002 in English and held by 676 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
