For the fifth installment of Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre’s Geigeki Selection RooTS series, an up-and-coming director offers a bold new take on a play from the era of Japanese underground theater, a movement considered to be at the roots of contemporary drama.

Playwright/director Mitsunori Fukuhara bided his time before taking on this acclaimed masterpiece, written by Juro Kara as the opening play for the Honda Theater in Shimokitazawa in April, 1982,
He has put together a talented cast of individuals, including Shinobu Terajima, Tasuku Emoto and Tomorowo Taguchi.
