Artistic Director of the Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre Hideki Noda - renowned Japanese playwright, director and performer - brings One Green Bottle to NYC after the 2018 London premiere. His critically acclaimed production of The Bee was presented in 2012 by Japan Society as part of the Under The Radar Festival.
One Green Bottle stars Hideki himself with Lilo Baur and Glyn Pritchard. The English translation is adapted by Will Sharpe and features music based on Japanese Noh and Kabuki traditions, performed by Genichiro Tanaka.
An absurdist gender-bending farce, One Green Bottle artfully illustrates our current selfie society's relationship with consumerism and modern technology through one night in the life of a disordered family on the road to ruin: Bo, Boo and Pickle all have plans, but someone must stay home to care for their pregnant dog, Princess. Trivial disputes and slapstick mischief quickly morph into family feuds and also, possibly, to the end of the world.
