Summary A sparkling comedy on the elusive nature of reality, in which truth is negotiable and identity is performed, 'Absolutely! (Perhaps)' is an adaptation of Pirandello's first play, and opened at the Wyndham Theatre in 2003. In a small Italian town lives Signor Ponza, his wife and his apparent mother-in-law Signora Frola, who he will not allow to visit. With the neighbours gossiping over his cruelty, Signor Ponza claims that Signora Frola is mad and refusing to accept that her daughter is dead, and that he now lives with his second wife. Signora Frola counters the accusation, claiming that Ponza has unwittingly re-married his first wife. Impossibly, the Signora Ponza in question claims to be both daughter and second wife, plunging the play into a tangle of fractious theatricality
