It’s Gen X vs. Gen Y in this slacker comedy of manners that follows the romantic adventures of part-time workers in a Tokyo manga café. This new play from one of Japan’s leading theatre artists reveals a portrait of Japanese youth culture adrift and the current socio-economic rifts that have widened the gap between generations. Enjoy is the inaugural project in The Play Company's Universal Voices translation program, a new initiative to commission American translations of foreign-language plays. From the producers of Rainbow Kiss, The Attic, Romania. Kiss Me! and Sakharam Binder.
About the Company: The Play Company
The Play Company is dedicated to advancing an international view of contemporary playwriting. The company was formed to address our community’s lack of access to plays from other parts of the world, and to promote theatre as a means to engage with the ideas, issues and artists that shape our time. We include the U.S. in our "international view", producing American plays within this global context to emphasize cultural dialogue and the open exchange of ideas. We make our work affordable and accessible through modest ticket prices and grassroots outreach to the city's many cultural communities. The Play Company’s work expands the spectrum of theatre produced in our city, diversifies the repertoire in NYC and beyond, deepens our community’s understanding of contemporary playwriting by introducing foreign texts, and encourages artists and audiences to view American writing within a broader international context. In 2007, these achievements were cited when Play Co. received an OBIE Theatre Grant Award for its contribution to the Off-Broadway theatre community.
