Pirandello's Wife

Performed at the Alley Theatre, Buffalo

A two-act dark comedy.


Married for 25 years to Italy’s famous playwright, Antonietta spent the last 40 years of her life in an asylum. Using the inmates as actors, Antonietta, attempts to tell her story, that of a marginalized woman, to an unhearing world. Her effort is, however, prevented by the Director of the Institution who insists on the accepted version of life in the Pirandello household.
