Sakiko is nervous. She’s introducing her fiancée Dan to her parents for the first time at her family home in Kani, Japan. And, whilst brother Hiroki, the ‘perfect child’, got married close to home, Sakiko’s got to break the news that their wedding will be in London, where they’ve built their lives.
But under the surface, something isn’t right. Her mother is acting strangely, her father is gone for hours and a strange figure waits in the garden.
A thrilling, bilingual show and first co-production between Leeds Playhouse and Kani Public Arts Center in Japan, performed in Japanese and English with surtitles.
