Six Characters in Search of an Author is a very famous play written by the Italian writer Luigi Pirandello. The play premiered in 1921 at Teatro Valle in Rome, with shouts from the audience of “Manicomio!” (“Madhouse!”). However, the reception later improved and the play is now considered one of the most appreciated of the 20th century. The six characters of the comedy try to act anecdotes of their own lives with dramatic consequences.
