THE MISUNDERSTANDING to Play at New National Theatre
The 73rd National Arts Festival by Agency for Cultural Affairs will present The Misunderstanding at the New National Theatre Oct. 4-21.
Opening Ogawa Eriko's first season as Artistic Director of Drama is a performance of "The Misunderstanding" by the 20th century French playwright and author Albert Camus. While works by Camus have been performed quite often in Japan, The Misunderstanding in particular is the most familiar work, having been performed many times over since its first performance in 1951 by Bungakuza.
This is the first time Camus' work will be performed at the New National Theatre. It will be directed by the up-and-coming Inaba Kae, who has gained acclaim in her recent works at Bungakuza Theatre Company for her detailed and scrupulous staging of Michel Azama's "Crusades" and Ibsen's "The Wild Duck".
Kae will direct a cast featuring Harada Mieko, Kojima Hijiri, Mizuhashi Kenji, Fukaya Miho and Kobayashi Katsuya.
