Event Description

Play: 附子, The Delicious Poison

Tarō-kaja and Jirō-kaja are entrusted with some sugar by their master, but told not to eat it, as it is poison; naturally, they eat it.

* Kyogen is comic theater which developed alongside Noh. While Noh is musical and solemn, Kyogen provides comic relief with a focus on clever dialogue. Historically Kyogen and Noh alternated in the same program, but now Kyogen is also performed independently, as will be the case in this event.
