Peace Boat’s Global University - Now Accepting Participants for
August 2017 [Tokyo-Yangon]

How do we achieve peace and justice in society? This question is more
pressing today, when the tendency to secure safety by division and
exclusion―rather than cooperation and inclusion―seems to be spreading
globally. When we turn on news, anti-immigration rhetoric is heard
everywhere and intolerance to others seems to be growing stronger.

From August 10 to 28, 2017, Japan-based international NGO Peace Boat’s
Global University will organise a 19-day programme with the theme
“Building Peaceful and Inclusive Societies in the Asia-Pacific.”

The programme will be a combination of interactive onboard seminars
and field visits in four places (Tokyo, Xiamen, Singapore, and
Yangon). Drawing on actual case studies from the Asia-Pacific region,
this programme will expose participants to issues related to poverty
and discrimination, environmental issues, migration and conflict…

Black Stripe Theater presents Dealer’s Choice by Patrick Marber on March 23-26

Black Stripe Theater brings Patrick Marber’s play about men obsessed with gambling to Sangubashi Transmission Theater.

Dealer's Choice, Patrick Marber’s debut play, was first performed at the Royal National Theatre (Cottesloe) in London in February 1995 starring Ray Winston, and it won both the 1995 Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy and the Writers' Guild Award for Best West End Play.  A 2007 hugely popular revival of the play at the Menier Chocolate Factory was transferred to the Trafalgar Studios and was nominated for several awards.

The play is set in a restaurant in London and follows the lives of six poker addicts – Carl, Sweeney, Ash, Frankie, Stephen and Mugsy. The action takes place over three acts and the third act is set around the poker table.  The play is about fathers and sons and the emotional deficiencies of men addicted to playing poker.

‘Play the man not the cards’. Though this play is about gambling, it’s really about desperate lengths people go to get w…
