Pirandello's One-Act Plays
May 1 & 3 7:30 p.m.
May 4, 2:30 p.m.
Gillespy Theater

Translated by William Murray
Join us for an evening of one-acts by the Italian master, Luigi Pirandello.  One of the greatest and most influential playwrights of Modern Drama, Pirandello won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1934 for his “bold and brilliant renovation of the drama and the stage. “
Wily peasants, feisty pessimists, frustrated rural sophists, and the entire masquerade of a sadly comic humanity-without-props make up this delightful and valuable collection of plays.

ONCE ON THIS ISLAND is the highly original and theatrical adaptation of the popular fairy tale The Little Mermaid. In almost non-stop song and dance, the show tells the story of Ti Moune, a peasant girl who rescues and falls in love with Daniel, a wealthy boy from the other side of her island. After Daniel is returned to his people, the fantastical gods who rule the island guide Ti Moune on a quest to test the strength of her love against the powerful forces of prejudice and hatred. Appropriate and entertaining for the whole family!
