'Six Characters In Search Of An Author' Explores Meta Approach To Plays


How can a play exist without a playwright? That metaphysical question is at the heart of the new City Theatre production “Six Characters in Search of an Author.”

Director Peter Mohrmann oversees this early 20th century Italian work. He’s joined by Sacramento City College adjunct professor and actress Adrienne Sher as well as actor Mark Cornfield to discuss the complicated work.

It’s described as "il teatro dello specchio," or "the mirror theater," a play that turns a mirror onto the theater itself. 

You can view the play at Sac City College from Sept. 23 through Oct. 16.
