Brian Brophy, Director
A woodcutter, a thief, a young woman, and a samurai meet in the forest. Each tells a different story of the same event—Just who can you believe?
The 90-minute production features Caltech graduate students, Amit Lakhanpal, Benjamin R. Sveinbjornsson, Zachary J. Tobin, Kari Alison Hodge and Utkarsh Mital, Caltech undergrad Ella Dodd, Staffer Zachary Abbott and JPLers Hui Ying Wen and Joseph Cook (an alumnus). This fully-staged production is based on Japanese director Akira Kurosawa's classic film and the Broadway script by Fay and Michael Kanin and edited by dramaturg Ann K. Lindsey. The original bamboo set designed is by international artist Stephen Glassman.
This event will take place at 400 South Hill Avenue in Pasadena, just across the street from the east edge of the Caltech campus.
This Sunday performance will be followed by a sushi reception!
The same performance will be presented Saturday, April 6th at 2:30 p.m.
