Enrico IV, a monologue

September 27 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Enrico IV – Henry IV

adapted from the play by Luigi Pirandello
translated by Gloria Pastorino
World Premiere Adaptation by Laura Caparrotti and Rocco Sisto
With Rocco Sisto

Here comes the King! Or, rather, here comes a man who took a fall, hit his head, and now believes himself to be King Henry IV. Is he mad, or is this just his way of telling the truth to those around him? Pirandello’s central theme of madness vs. the mask that society forces us to wear is the focus of this new adaptation, where ‘mad’ Henry speaks directly to his audience – who may just be more mad than he is.
