Kairos Italy Theater (Casa Italiana Theater Company in Residence) presents:
Characters in Search of a Country
Based on Six Characters in Search of an Author by Luigi Pirandello
Directed by Laura Caparrotti
Assistant Director: Carlotta Brentan
Six Characters search for an author to allow them to tell their story. In Kairos Italy Theater's version, the characters are immigrants in search of a country where they can tell and live their stories. Using the words written by Pirandello, in Italian, English and other languages, KIT presents a piece that reflects upon the contemporary problems of migration.
Characters in Search of a Country is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
The performance is also made possible by the Goddard Community Service and by Material for the Arts.
In ENGLISH, ITALIAN and other languages.
