“34 Actors in search of a Play” echoes the Pirandello play 6 characters in search of an author. I invite
the viewer to join the Actors search. I identify with the Actor’s lonely wait for somebody to employ
them. The plays are hinted at in visual jokes and metaphors. For example, a man leans against a wall
listening — “Noises off” by Alan Ayckbourn. A hamster works on its treadmill - The Taming of the
Shrew. A full list of the plays will be given to any interested party.
