The Ghost is Here US PREMIERE!
Written by Kobo Abe, translated by Donald Keene
Directed by Jaclynn Jutting
Presented by Vitalist Theatre
January 12, 2012 — February 19, 2012
Storefront Theater, located at 66 E. Randolph
$25 for general admission; $20 for seniors; $15 for students; $15 for previews (1/12)

Kobo Abe’s rarely-produced 1957 epic play, The Ghost is Here, examines the impact of war upon a culture and a nation. Set in the ruins of post-World War II Japan at a moment in history when the nation was forced to redefine itself as a country, the play uses original music, stylized song and dance, and a multicultural cast to bring Abe’s story to life to a “Tokyo Boogie Woogie” beat. As Japan’s people reinvent themselves in the midst of monumental challenges, The Ghost is Here echoes straight to modern day America.
