Rules of the Game, The

Luigi Pirandello's 1918 tragicomedy is set among the Italian upper class. The main characters are an impulsive young woman, the lover she exasperates and her cynical husband. The husband?s apathetic attitude is that life is a game played by arbitrary rules, and his role is that of an unemotional observer. His philosophy is severely put to the test when his wife draws him into a duel with a nobleman who drunkenly accosted her.
