Six Characters...is an absurdist metatheatrical play. A group of theatre artists rehearse a known play...and get interrupted by 6 characters from another play, which was never finished by its author. These 6 characters find themselves in a purgatory of sorts, trying to find a "home" for their stories to live in. 

Pirandello's play reminds us that all great art takes on a life of its own, after being created, and we are challenged to find meaningful difference between a work-in-progress and its eventual effects on audience members.
