Six Characters in Search of an Author
By Luigi Pirandello, adapted by Steve Moulds
Directed by David Kersnar
A troupe of actors are interrupted by a group of fictional characters, abandoned by their creator, demanding to be brought to life by a new author. The actors become swept up in the characters’ melodramatic story, causing the lines between reality and fiction to blur. The original “meta” theatrical experience is given new immediacy in this contemporary adaptation crafted specifically for the UW-Madison production.
The cast features Alexandria Chapes, Camden Ebert, Jack Gammie, Allison Garfield, Bri Hunter, Philip Klinker, Mallory Lewis, Clare Loughran, Brandon Pena, Kyle Thompson, and Erin Wathen.
There will be an Opening Night reception featuring hors d’oeuvres and cash bar before and dessert after the performance Friday, October 12th.
