THE 6 (Six Actors & Six Authors)

The one-hour television cabaret series has been broadcast by MTV (Hungarian Public Television) four times on Saturdays so far. The inspiration for the show’s title comes from Pirandello’s drama, “Six Characters in Search of an Author” as it is a production by 6 actors and 6 authors. Although THE 6 avoids direct focus on politics, its impact on the public and our everyday life can clearly be detected in most of the pieces. The show is about the incredible situations we all face – in short the absurdities of our life. As the cabaret is unthinkable without real spectators, it is shot during a live performance in the Tivoli Theater with a real audience. By its atmosphere and nature, this cabaret series reminds us at a recorded theater production. MTV considers the show’s continuation in its future plans.
