The play will run for eight performances between June 20th and 30th. The cast includes two New York Equity actors brought over just for this show - Katherine Puma in the role of Anna and Rob Skolits in the role of Burton. Tokyo standouts Ed Gilmartin (Pale) and Graig Russell (Larry) will round out the four-person cast. Alysha Haran will make her Tokyo debut as director.

The play is part of Tokyo Arts Week, a summer festival blending mixed media, theatre, music, and dance. It is designed to give artists and those who enjoy the arts a reason to come out and enjoy two weeks chock-full of arts events, and is sponsored by Baird Beer. Gilmartin, who is a co-producer of Tokyo Arts Week and who directed The Crucible for TIP last season, remarked, “For years I’ve been wanting to do a show in Tokyo that runs for more than just one weekend. To be able to do that with these talented actors from New York makes it that much more special. We get our fair share of touring musicals or productions of Shakespeare, but it’s very rare for Tokyo to attract stage actors performing a modern drama. The audience is in for a special treat.”
