As we awake from the hibernation effect of a polar vortex, a classic play by Luigi Pirandello is being exercised. ”Six Characters in Search of an Author” is one of many default plays intricately studied by theatre classes in high school & college classrooms around the globe. The coined term of “metatheatre” will be pushed as the Mental Notion Society takes its turn in breaking (or not breaking) that “fourth wall.” Please join us as we present the piece in a modern foundation sprinkled with classic language.
“Six Characters in Search of an Author” makes its 5-week run every Friday at 8:00 pm (CST) from February 21st thru March 21st, 2014, at Stage773, 1225 W. Belmont Ave., Chicago, IL 60657. Tickets are $12 (w/out applicable ticket fees) and may be purchased at the theater box office, or by phone (773-327-5252), or online at www.stage773.com.
