The Play to be Played

29 Jun - 9 Jul


Cervantes Theatre



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.

A few actors and a space where they can develop their performance. Nothing else. Practically without any scenery, without large displays of lighting, costumes or props. The actors and the living word.
