In 1921, Luigi Pirandello crafted a piece about the work we leave behind. As humans, we often dismiss our smaller ideas, believing they will never amount to anything. To most, especially those in the arts, these thoughts simply fade away into the unknown, but Pirandello presents a work with the intent of opening everyone's mind to what our ideas may have become. A piece about incomplete professional work, Six Characters in Search of an Author brings characters to life, and on a stage, where actual actors are baffled as to how these characters even came to exist. Pirandello presents a dramatic satire about his own unfinished work, making us question if the work we’ve abandoned could actually have been the masterpiece we never produced. As the characters unfold their story to the actors on the stage, the audience gets a small taste of the struggles of an artist’s life, such as the difficulty of completing what you started. While the characters presented may never have actually come to fruition, Pirandello wants everyone to realize that their own works can indeed come to life, just like the characters on stage.
