Two more weekends to catch 'Six Characters'

From Pirandello lovers to theatre novices, audience members have been seduced by the magic of the stage itself during Ghostlight Ensemble's production of Luigi Pirandello's Six Characters in Search of an Author.

But if critics, rather than audience reaction, is your thing, NewCity Stage recommends our "shaggy, funky" approach to the play, adding it "captures the gap between artistic impulse and finished product and between our own sense of self and others’ stereotyped perceptions. By exposing the fakery of theater, Six Characters paradoxically reveals its capacity for truth."

Six Characters in Search of an Author continues this Friday, April 28, at Voice of the City studio in Logan Square.  The show runs Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. through May 7.

Reserve your tickets now for this classic metatheatrical play that finds new relevance while addressing the problems of modern theater.

Join the actors and crew of a small, but scrappy Chicago storefront theatre as they begin rehearsals for The Mountain Giants Pirandello's final, unfinished work only to see their work halted by six strangers who show up with a fantastic tale of their own.

Ghostlight Ensemble's production of Six Characters in Search of an Author examines the institutional racism and biases found in theatre.

This production is supported by the L’Istituto Italiano di Cultura Chicago and is being produced in conjunction with Voice of the City.
