Luigi Pirandello’s Tonight We Improvise
A Staged Reading

progra9A play within a play, Tonight We Improvise (first production in 1930) depicts the experiences of Dr. Hinkfuss, an experimental theatre director who is thrown out of the theatre during an improvisation when his will collides with the spontaneous impulses of the actors, who are immersed in their parts. This metatheatrical piece explores the frequently contradictory roles played by playwright, text, actor, character, director, designer and audience within a theatrical event.

Directed by: Elfin Frederick Vogel
