Takes place in an Italian Villa in our own time and marks Pirandello's growth as an artist as illusion and reality crystallize in the celebrated confrontations of form and life. Pirandello's kinetic pattern is still deception, outrage and remedy by larger deceit. To Pirandello, it can be marked from this play that form meant artistic form, and artistic form meant increasing dramatic form. Theatre and life as coexisting themes are at work brilliantly.
