Directed by Natsu Onoda Power September 1, 2019
Unpublished, unproduced! -- preview this newly discovered one-act before it travels to Provincetown for a world premiere at this year'sTennessee Williams Festival (September 26-29). The Lady from the Village of Falling Flowers is directed by Natsu Onoda Power, winner of two Helen Hayes Awards for The Lathe of Heaven at Spooky Action last year. This innovative event mixes Japanese kami-shibai style street theater with storytelling performers. Subtitled “A Japanese fantasy,” The Lady from the Village of Falling Flowers has its head in the stars and both feet on the ground. It’s a punchy send-up of love, the perils of first impressions, and our earthly attempts to touch something eternal.
