A Minor Cycle: Five Little Plays in One Starry Night
San Francisco, CA
Share this event:

Unabashedly sentimental, wild, romantic, and funny as childhood, "A Minor Cycle: Five Little Plays in One Starry Night" features five new one-act plays based on famous tales and forgotten stories of childhood. It is a journey of discovery for the young, and of remembrance for the old.

Written by Philadelphia playwright Greg Giovanni, each play in "A Minor Cycle" receives the exquisite veneer of traditional Japanese artistry, be it the ritualistic Noh theater, the earthy Kyogen, the flamboyant Kabuki or the delicate Bunraku. Ghosts, dragons, and toy soldiers will dance across the stage employing the undeniable beauty of these four traditional Japanese theatre forms.

Written in an ensemble process in our first collaboration with renowned Philadelphia-based playwright Greg Giovanni, along with musical compositions by Edward Schocker, this theatrical tour de force invites audiences to simultaneously experience the age-old, the eternal and the ever new in a journey to that magical time "when every road led onward."
