Thought-provoking play about varying perspectives and the impossibility of knowing absolute truth. I liked how Pirandello described the characters' dress and personality in the stage directions.

This play struck me as a good one to read as it is mostly talk. I'd still watch a performance but I had less feeling of missing something with this one than typical. ( )

Uma cidade de província na Itália fica abalada com a história da recém chegada senhora Frola, que não vê a filha por uma proibição do genro, o também recém chegado senhor Ponza. O senhor Ponza, porém, conta que a filha da senhora Frola morreu há quatro anos e que ela, enlouquecida pela dor, crê que a sua segunda mulher é a filha e que o marido a proíbe de sair de casa. O caso é o contrário segundo a senhora Frola: ela diz que o genro enlouqueceu e pensa que ficou viúvo e se casou de novo, por isso a proíbe de ver a filha pensando que é sua segunda mulher.
Pirandello escreveu essa "farsa filosófica" para zombar de uma realidade que possa ser interpretada racionalmente. O povo da cidade fica obcecado em descobrir quem está dizendo a verdade e quem enlouqueceu, já que ambos parecem tão normais [sic], e descobrirão a ilusão de uma verdade absoluta mesmo no confronto clímax.

This famous play, an expressionistic parable by the Nobel Prize-winning Italian playwright, explores such themes as the relativity of truth, the vanity and necessity of illusion and the instability of the human personality.
