Tales from Rashomon
March 5, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$20.00
Green T brings back its dramatic adaptation of several of Ryunosuke Akutagawa’s short stories, made famous by Akira Kurosawa’s award winning film “Rashomon” in 1950.
A colorful band of refugees from natural and man-made disasters gather under civilization’s ruins to wait out a storm. To pass the time, they read testimonies from an unusual murder trial. A bandit is accused of having murdered a samurai who was passing through a bamboo grove with his wife. Testimony is heard from the bandit, the samurai’s wife, and, through a medium, the samurai himself. Each story is so detailed and credible that it is impossible to tell which is true. The very nature of truth and reality is questioned.
“The tone of the piece is assured and wrenching, with Welch's direction leading an ensemble cast through a ghostly reality”.
—Quinton Skinner, City Pages
(original 2009 production)
