Six Characters in Search of an
East Quad
Thursday-Sunday, November 18-21
T HE CAST IS on stage, rehearsing
the play Mixing It Up. The Leading
Actor and the Producer argue about
costumes. In from the lobby walks a
family of six, dressed in black. The
Father asks the Producer if the
Producer will put the family in a new
piece. No, replies the Producer, the
current play is already cast. But the
Father insists, and goes on to explain
himself and his family. They are not
unemployed actors; they are six
Characters from an unfinished story.
They seek a new author, or a producer
to put them on stage, to let them com-
plete themselves by living out their
Story. And so begins Luigi Pirandello's
Six Characters in Search of an Author.
Six Characters in Search of an Author
opens Thursday, November 18th, at
East Quad's Residential College, at
8:00 p.m. Evening performances con-
tinue through Sunday, the 21st; there

will also be a matinee Sunday afternoon.
at 2:30. The ticket price is three dollars.
The Italian playwright Luigi Piran-
dello wrote Six Characters in 1921 as a
reaction against conventional theatre.
Most theatre in Pirandello's time was
"naturalist"-that is, the actors
pretended they were real characters in
the story they were playing out. The
audience watched, and accepted the
convention of the illusion-the conven-
tion that what the actors were doing on
stage was real.
Pirandello attacked that convention.
He disdained theatre for tired
businessmen. Merely providing a
pleasant diversion, a little sex, and
some humor was not Pirandello's goal.
Instead, he created theatre that
would involve the audience, frustrate it,
and force it to re-examine some of its
assumptions about reality.
The Residential College chose to
produce Six Characters this fall for
much the same reason-to make the
audience think. Although the RC
usually does original plays, the
program directors found a strong direc-
tor in David Kelly, and took the oppor-
tunity to present a challenging play,
one rarely produced in Ann Arbor.
Kelly. a Ph.D. candidate in theatre,
has as his goal to create a "hotline"
from Pirandello to himself to the cast to
the audience, keeping intact the moods
Pirandello sought to make the audience
Pirandello and Kelly aim to force the
audience to puzzle through the multiple
levels of reality in the play. Examining
