A collection of much previously unpublished archive material, including documents from Luigi Pirandello's theoretical essays and reviews. Emphasizing Pirandello as a multi-faceted man of the theatre, this text follows the rise and fall of his own theatre company and his attempts to reform deeply entrenched practices in Italian theatre during the years of Fascism.
