WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

This purely WHAT adaptation of a masterpiece of 20th century theater shifts the focus to the character of the "Mother." Forced by circumstances to return to her first husband after the death of her second, the Mother navigates a lively, absurd world where lullabies turn into wild tarantellas and the characters' fate depends on an unseen author to complete their story. Two years ago Artistic Director Dan Lombardo visited the Pirandello House in Sicily and attended a Greek theater festival on the island. He returned with a new understanding of the playwright and the roots of SIX CHARACTERS... Pirandello's Sicilian culture is substantially Greek. The Mother's unremitting love for one son in opens passions that play out to an ending no one but the Greeks - or Pirandello - could imagine.
