Nestled in the cloudy seaside bluffs of Yamate in Yokohama stands the newly renovated Gaiety Theater. With origins dating back to 1870, the Gaiety has operated from various locations and hosted numerous theatrical organizations of Yokohama’s foreign thespian community.

The current occupant of this historic theater is the recently formed Loose Sock theater company. Following its inaugural production of Tom Stoppard’s “On the Razzle,” Loose Sock will present “The Soul Salon,” an original script written and directed by company founder Annie Bilton. Best described as a metaphysical comedy drama, “The Soul Salon” examines the possibility and consequences of altering one’s personality, reprograming psychology and eliminating all negative aspects of behavior.
