So it is
So it is
Italian writer and dramatist Luigi Pirandello, holder of the Nobel Prize for literature, belongs to the classics of modern drama and his comedy So It Is (If You Think So) is one of his most popular and most frequently presented pieces.
It is a highly radical selection of the author’s ideas about the real identity of a human being and the ways it is perceived by others, about the difference between identity and mask that the society dictates one to wear, and about the relativity of rushed judgments.
New people have moved to the town. Who are they? Why do they avoid others? The information about the new neighbours and their mysterious ways unravel gradually, are often contradictory, and the honourable citizens are naturally curious. After all - there’s never smoke without fire, isn’t it?
