The Cervantes Theatre invites you to an online dramatised reading of the play by the Spanish directors Miguel del Arco and Aitor Tejada and translated by Simon Breden.
In The Play to be Played, freely inspired by Six Characters In Search Of An Author, the protagonists of Pirandello’s play burst into the performance of a current production and vehemently claim their right to tell their real story, which for them is much more interesting than the fiction of our stages.
The author intends to create illusion. He apologetically uses this word which causes his characters so much pain in The Play to be Played. Illusion, after all, is the essence with which theatre works, the illusion of a moment of reality that can invite reflection and, hopefully, emotion.
