Monday, February 4, 7:30 PM — Followed by an artist Q&A

Children go missing, meteors rain from the sky and a blue demon lurks just out of sight in Japanese playwright SaringROCK’s 100 Years Stray, nominated for the prestigious Kishida Kunio Drama Award. New York-based director and theater-maker Taylor Reynolds tackles this apocalyptic coming-of-age story in a staged reading that explores a fictional universe where extreme isolation is the norm and women no longer exist. Playwright SaringROCK joins in a post-performance Q&A with the audience and director.

The 14th installment of Japan Society’s annual Play Reading Series introduces topical plays from up-and-coming playwrights in Japan to artists and audiences in the U.S.

Tickets: $15/$10 members
