SUMMARY

Luigi Pirandello (author of ‘Six characters in search of an author’) had one last play in store for the world, one like nothing he had attempted before, and one he died writing.

‘The Mountain Giants’, perched somewhere between fairy-tale and bitter realism, is a story about the place of theatre, and by extension art and the human imagination, in an increasingly money-driven world. Characters, music, lighting, set, costumes, all was put to use in his “feast for the mind and the eyes”.

75 years after its first performance, students collaborate with Oxford University’s Italian Sub-faculty to bring you a play like no other: Pirandello’s testament to theatre in a brand new translation with a completed ending.

Sponsored by Oxford University Modern Languages Faculty and Italian Studies at Oxford.

Admission: £8(£5)
