A Co-Production With PlaywrightS’ Arena
By Rosie Narasaki
Directed by Margaret Shigeko Starbuck
World Premiere Production
11th century Ladies-in-Waiting Murasaki Shikibu and Sei Shonagon are, to this day, two of Japan’s most beloved writers.
They also kind of hated each other.
This play is about friendship, heartbreak, and what it means to be a female artist. Perhaps most of all, it’s about how no matter how much things change, the more they stay the same… even after a thousand years.
