Hot on the heels of chelfitsch Theater Company’s acclaimed North American debut tour produced by Japan Society in winter 2009, The Play Company is producing the English-language premiere of Enjoy, a play by wunderkind playwright and chelfitsch founder Toshiki Okada. Following the lives and romances of 20 and 30-somethings who work part-time in a manga café in downtown Tokyo, this slacker comedy of manners reveals a portrait of Japanese youth culture adrift and illustrates the current socio-economic rifts in Japan that have widened the gap between generations. Dan Rothenberg, Co-Artistic Director of Philadelphia’s Obie Award-winning Pig Iron Theater Company, directs a cast of American actors in this new English translation.
