Peace Boat’s Global University

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

From August 10 to 28, 2017, Japan-based international NGO Peace Boat’s

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.
