I'm directing a staged reading of Kristine Haruna Lee's new play Suicide Forest on Tuesday October 18 at 8pm at the Bushwick Starr. The reading is FREE! Come check out this dark and funny play that dismantles the psyche of contemporary Japanese society and features --- GOATS.
I'm excited and curious about this play, especially after having spent some time helping Joshua Zucker-Pluda on his yet unfinished documentary Sea of Trees, about the virgin forest at the foot of Mount Fuji, famous for its gnarled uneven floor that disorients those who enter -- making it the ideal destination for people who want to disappear or commit suicide.
We're also assembling an all Japanese / Japanese-heritage cast, which is something I've been wanting to do for a while. xx
