Six Characters – Meet The Cast: ED DRAYCOTT

Who are you playing?

Father – One of the six eponymous characters who has made some very strange choices in life and has terrible remorse as a result. Each of the six characters represents something of our emotional lives, but there is much more to them than that. Each began life in the creative mind of the real author - Luigi Pirandello – and, in this exploration, desperately seeks a writer who can finish their drama and allow them to finally act out their parts.

"6 Characters" in 3 words:

Many different layers.

What are you enjoying most about the production?

I always enjoy being part of a Pranksters’ production, and this is a real gem. I particularly like the contrasts between the actors and the characters, the humour and strangeness of the whole set-up. It’s a pleasure to see this play take shape and be with a cast that bring it all to life with such passion. I think we are all finding that this production has layer upon layer to explore.

How long have you been with the Pranksters?

I joined the Pranksters in July 2013 for The Cherry Orchard. I had never tried acting before that. Apart from the great company and lots of fun, I’ve really enjoyed playing people that are not me. Or at least I don’t think they are.

Who is your favourite author/playwright?

My favourite author is Stephen King because he has a unique ability to transfer the world and people he imagines directly into your mind. It would be hard for me to pick a favourite playwright.
