WE ARE SAMURAI

Genre:

Marrow's Edge is proud to present We are Samurai, a new immersive play written by Daria Miyeko Marinelli and directed by Ria T. DiLullo. We Are Samurai is a suburban revenge tragedy about four twenty-somethings engaging in petty acts of violence in an effort to absolve a millennia-old offense. Following in the walk-around tradition of Sleep No More and Then She Fell, the dramatic action unfolds simultaneously across four different playing spaces and it is up to the audience to choose what to witness.

After Josephine returns home to find her cats brutally murdered for a crime she committed in a past life, she enlists her boyfriend to help her avenge her cats' deaths. What follows is a series of small, violent acts that are mundane and yet deeply tragic in their cyclical nature. Rooted in both contemporary suburbia and the historical traditions of Japanese Theatre, We Are Samurai uses cats, iPhones, and simultaneous action to explore age-old questions of agency and entitlement.

Marrow's Edge is a performance collective dedicated to creating new and exhilarating work that challenges the audience's relationship to theatre and theatrical experiences. Founded by Ria T DiLullo (director) and Daria Miyeko Marinelli (playwright), Marrow's Edge strives to create theatrical work that is boundary pushing and deeply visceral.
