A samurai is murdered and his wife raped. The body of the samurai is discovered by a woodcutter. Just before the crime took place, a priest passed the couple. A notorious bandit comes forward to claim responsibility for the crime and the woodcutter and priest are summoned to testify at the trial. So begins the recounting of the crime by …the bandit …the woodcutter …the wife …and the samurai (through a medium). Except each of the four testimonies contradict each other. What really happened on the day of the crime?

A stellar cast featuring both foreign and local actors including Doppo Narita, Maiya Goshima, Lee Swee Keong, Omar Ali, Faridah Merican will be directed by Joe Hasham OAM.

 

マレーシア現代演劇シーンをリードし続けるアクターズ・スタジオ(The Actors Studio) と国際交流基金クアラルンプールが、共にその設立30周年を記念してお届けする“Rashomon”(羅生門)。

黒澤明監督の名作『羅生門』をベースとしたこの舞台は、2003年に初演を迎えてからその現代版と合わせて既に2度再演されている人気作品。今回はキャスト・スタッフも大幅にリフレッシュしての再演となります。

ある侍が山中で殺され、その妻が襲われた。侍の亡骸は通りすがりの木こりによって発見されるが、事件が起こる直前には旅法師がその夫婦の近くを通り過ぎていた。悪名高き盗賊多襄丸が、犯人は自分であると名乗り出るが、木こりと法師もそれぞれ取り調べにて証言するよう命じられる。そして盗賊、木こり、妻、侍(の霊)がそれぞれに物語を語りはじめるが、その4つはどれも矛盾するものだった。その日、実際には何が起こったのであろうか?
