LCCC presents “Six Characters in Search of an Author”: LCCC’s Arts and Humanities division and the LCCC Theater Program presents “Six Characters in Search of an Author” at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, April 25-27 at the Stocker Arts Center's Cirigliano Studio Theatre. The play by Luigi Pirandello is directed by Stephanie Wilbert and presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.


"Six Characters in Search of an Author" is an absurdist metatheatrical play about the relationship among authors, their characters, and theatre practitioners. It was written and first performed in 1921, premiering at the Teatro Valle in Rome to a mixed reception, with shouts from the audience of "Manicomio!" ("Madhouse!") and "Incommensurabile!" ("Incommensurable!"), a reaction to the play's illogical progression.

Reception improved at subsequent performances, especially after Pirandello provided for the play's third edition, published in 1925, a foreword clarifying its structure and ideas. The play had its American premiere in 1922 on Broadway at the Princess Theatre and was performed for over a year off-Broadway at the Martinique Theatre beginning in 1963. This modern adaptation by Robert Brustein is accessible, contemporary, and highly speak able, while retaining the flavor of the Italian original. The LCCC production feature a cast and crew of 20 LCCC students and community members.


Visit www.stockerartscenter.com or call (440) 366-4040 for tickets. Tickets are $9 for adults and $8 for seniors, LCCC faculty, staff and students.


For more information, contact Jeremy Benjamin at jbenjami@lorainccc.edu or 440-366-7120.

Mozart, Le Nozze di Figaro and O mio babbino caro from Giacomo Puccini, Gianni Schicchi.
