KIT (Kairos Italy Theater) presents this world-premiere adaptation of Luigi Pirandello's classic drama. More…
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. In this monologue, Enrico IV speaks only his own words from the play. 'Enrico IV, A monologue' is part of KIT's 'AlieNation' series, and is being performed in repertory with 'A Story of Love and Soccer/The Journey I Never Made.'
See it if you are interested in seeing a fine actor tackle the words of a great playwright.
Don't see it if you expect to see the play. This monologue is confusing and unsatisfying despite the skill of the actor.
