Two titans of Japanese theater, contemporary dramatist Hideki Noda (who has also triumphed three times directing kabuki plays at its Kabukiza mecca) and star kabuki actor Kanzaburo Nakamura, will team up on stage at Tokyo Metropolitan Art Space in Ikebukuro from Sept. 5-28 to perform a new play by Noda titled “Omote ni Deroi!” (“Come Outside!”).

Though the play is still a work in progress, its cast will comprise just a middle-aged married couple and their daughter.
