Populated by wily servants, self-important lords, larger than life mountain ascetics, city slickers, and country bumpkins, this Japanese medieval comic form is as accessible to 21st century global audiences as it has been to Japanese crowds for 600 years. While comedy brings much needed laughter into our lives, it has also long been a gently yet effective way of delivering political and social criticism. This production will stage a wide array of kyogen plays, from classical to newly written, including a “Hawai’i kyogen” that will leave you laughing – and thinking – about some important current issues facing us today.
