An adaptation of Luigi Pirandello's play by Ali Bakewell
Because the show must go on-line
Audio Described Video
We have created an audio described version of our Six Characters live stream performance - available on out YouTube page.
Some actors and a director meet to rehearse a play with the stage manager facilitating when six characters turn up out of the blue. The characters are stuck in the Edwardian era in which they were created. They want to tell their story as their play was never written.
The director is persuaded to let them perform their story and there is a lot of banter with the actors telling them how to perform it better and the characters claiming only they know the real “truth” of the story. As the characters’ story unfolds we are led down a very dark and uncomfortable path.
