Ghostlight Ensemble will present 'Six Characters in Search of an Author' this spring as an examination of the modern Chicago storefront theatre scene.
In Pirandello's classic metatheatrical play, six characters come looking for life and find the theatre world acutely unable to make them real. Ghostlight’s productions strips away the masks – literally and figuratively – and uses the relationships between characters, actors, authors, directors and audience to expose the institutional racism and biases found in modern theatre.
'Six Characters in Search of an Author' takes on new relevance in this age of reality television when fiction is often realer than reality.
