THE SONIC LIFE OF A GIANT TORTOISE Announced At Brown University

Theatre Arts & Performance Studies and Sock & Buskin present The Sonic Life of a Giant Tortoise by Toshiki Okada, translated by Aya Ogawa.

A man dreams that his girlfriend is dead. A woman dreams she is riding the subway, forever. The Sonic Life of a Giant Tortoise is a modern folktale set against an urban landscape, about our collective longing for the extraordinary, and the mundanity of everyday life. This play is about you, me, us and them.

A post-show discussion led by the translator of The Sonic Life of a Giant Tortoise, Aya Ogawa, will follow the April 7 performance. Aya Ogawa, who has translated over a dozen plays by Toshiki Okada, is a Tokyo-born and Brooklyn-based writer, director, and translator. Tickets for this performance, in addition to performances April 4 - 6, are offered as Pay What You Can performances.

The Sonic Life of a Giant Tortoise by Toshiki Okada, translated by Aya Ogawa, directed by Kym Moore runs April 4 through April 14 at Leeds Theatre on the main campus at Brown University (83 Waterman Street, Providence, RI 02912.)

Performances take place Thursday through Saturday at 8 pm and Sundays at 2 pm.

April 4 - 7 Tickets are Pay What You Can ($0-$15)
