Genre: Festival

Theatre Arts Japan is proud to announce the New York premiere of four staged readings by four leading Japanese playwrights of today.

Sixty years after the close of the 2nd World War, Japan's memory of it grows dim, yet the shadow of World War II still hangs over the country, leaving a fear unfounded against other races. Japanese and War brings us back to a place in history whose effect persists though we try to forget.
