Epic story of 16th Century Japanese Civil War

“Castles in the Crimson Flame” to open

at The Broadwater Main Stage in June!

Castles In the Crimson Flame takes the audience to the warring states period, Sengoku Jidai, 16th century Japan, when all the powerful Lords battled each other, aiming to conquer and unify Japan. This is a story of Chacha (Lady Yodo). She was born into the sublime lineage of a samurai warrior family, Oda clan, right in the midst of the raging war of Sengoku-Jidai. Ever since her notoriously famed uncle, Nobunaga Oda suddenly and dramatically died as he was about to conquer all of Japan, Chacha’s fate showed no mercy to her. Yet, she aims to become the most powerful woman in Japan. The story also features the aesthetic life of Lords in Sengoku Jidai. Samurais thrived and endeavored beyond their limit to demonstrate the way of battle heroes and the ideal way to end their lives as legendary warriors. Castle In the Crimson Flame captures the most dramatic time in Japanese history through the eyes of one tragic woman, Chacha, who’s blood never ceases to be hungry for power and desire as a ruler, a lover, and a mother.

Tomoko Karina fiercely plays notorious historical figure, Chacha, 2022 Broadway world regional Award (Los Angeles) Supporting Actress Winner, Yukari Black plays Kikuyo mysteriously and comically, and Music and Instruments, Taiko drum and Japanese bamboo flute is played by Davis Wells.

Ensemble Tenshi, a theatre company that previously produced the award-winning play "Shizuka - " delivers their new epic play at Hollywood Fringe Festival in June 2024.
