This website has been created in conjunction with Dartmouth Theater Department’s class, Theater 17: Theater and Society III–The Late 19th through the 20th Century to serve as a digital dramaturgy notebook for Luigi Pirandello’s 1921 masterpiece, 6 Characters in Search of an Author.

This online platform explores the historical context in which this play was imagined, previous productions of this work, and in what context we should engage with this play in today’s world.

I hope to provide meaningful insights into the historical, sociopolitical, and environmental factors that shaped this play, but believe this site will be even more effective as a dialogue. Please feel free to post and comment as you see fit.


Kind regards,
