Théâtre de la Ville: "Six personnages en quête d'auteur" de Pirandello

from French in Ann Arbor


Thanks to the University of Michigan Musical Society, we are extremely privileged to be able to welcome a French theater from Paris, le Théâtre de la Ville, in our city. The play will be in French, but with supertitles, like for operas. You need to order tickets, of course, but if you are going, register here so that we can see how much interest there is. We need this event to be successful. Here are some details about the play, published by UMS:

Luigi Pirandello won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1934 for his “bold and brilliant renovation of drama and the stage.” His Six Characters in Search of an Author, which dates from 1921, is an absurdist metatheatrical play about the relationship between authors and their characters. A dysfunctional family of six bursts into a rehearsal of another Pirandello play with a curious claim: they are characters who have been abandoned by their author and are seeking someone to complete their story. The theater manager is intrigued and agrees to help, but becomes vexed by the interplay of the real actors with the unrealized characters, whose literary limbo causes fiction and reality to overlap. The production is directed by Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota and performed by Théâtre de la Ville, which gave an outstanding performance of Ionesco’s Rhinocéros two seasons ago.

Performance note:
Contains adult situations. In French with English supertitles.

Where does inspiration come from? What makes an artist tick? Join us for a post-performance Q&A and get a glimpse into the lives and minds of the artists that bring creativity to the stage. Must have a ticket to this evening’s performance to attend.
