Abstract
 
Description
Drama Fay Kanin and Michael Kanin Characters: 6 male, 3 female Exterior SetThe famous stories of Akutagawa were adapted for Broadway for Claire Bloom, Rod Steiger, Akim Tamiroff and Oscar Homolka. The wife of a Samurai officer is assaulted and her husband killed by a roving bandit. Contradictory versions of what happened are reenacted at the trial by the bandit, the wife and the dead husband who speaks through a sorceress. Each version is true in its fashion. "Delicate and dynamic, sensitive and savage, packed with color, suspense and seamy wit. A triumph of stagecraft." N.Y. Mirror. "Rashomon is pure art of the theatre. Out of a legend, it conjures a mood. No one need despair of a commercial theatre that can deal in elusive materials with so much delicacy, expertness and charm." N.Y. Times. - from Amzon
