Six Characters in Search of an Author: Full Text and Introduction (NHB Drama Classics) by Luigi Pirandello

The NHB Drama Classics series presents the world's greatest plays in affordable, highly readable editions for students, actors and theatregoers. The hallmarks of the series are accessible introductions (focussing on the play's theatrical and historical background, together with an author biography, key dates and suggestions for further reading) and the complete text, uncluttered with footnotes. The translations, by leading experts in the field, are accurate and above all actable. The editions of English-language plays include a glossary of unusual words and phrases to aid understanding.

Six Characters in Search of an Author is Pirandello's play about the nature of theatre and the problems of theatricality. Six characters, whose author has abandoned them mid-process, turn up at a rehearsal and demand to be played by the actors present in order to resolve their tragedy and become 'real'.

Translated and introduced by Stephen Mulrine.
