Henry (After Pirandello)
Published by Dramatists Play Service
6 Male 3 Female
Actor Richard McMillan is Henry, a man of enormous wealth and privilege
A man who also believes he is the eleventh-century Holy Roman Emperor and German King Henry IV
A fortress is built and actors are hired to carry out his fantasy
But is he mad?
Or are we?
Adapted from Luigi Pirandello's Enrico IV, Kilroy's version transports Pirandello's main character into twenty-first-century Hollywood with sensationally dramatic results
" ... a flashy theatrical tour-de-force, an artfully layered construct of illusion and memory, madness and insight ... a richly melodramatic spectacle imbued with philosophic speculation" ~ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
