This play, which received seven Max Awards, featuring the same team that later staged the work, Summer Folk, marked the rise of Miguel del Arco as a director and "re-creator" of marvellous repertory texts. It transfers the "six characters in search of an author", who in Pirandello's work interrupt a rehearsal in the early twentieth century, to the performance of a contemporary production, turning them into "cultural terrorists". They vehemently demand their right to tell the real story, which, in their opinion, is more interesting than the fiction of the stage.
This is theatre without props, staged just a few feet away from the audience, so that the truth of the characters merges with the performance of the actors.
Following a long tour, this production returns to Madrid in order to bid farewell. Finally, the show is "done".
"This is real theatre" (La Razón). "Packed with soul, heart and life" (El País). "Essential, intense, exciting" (ABC).
