A section on background information includes surveys of theater in Italy before Pirandello and surrealism in his work, while the seven contributions on his plays focus on Six Characters in Search of an Author, Henry IV, and Tonight We Improvise.

Subsequent sections address Pirandellos influence, his work in production, and his non-theatrical works. The book concludes with a set of three appendixes, providing a production history of Six Characters and Henry IV, a Pirandello bibliography, and a list of his publications.
