About this event

Never Mind

Presented by Kunoichi Productions in association with Theatre of Yugen

Written by Ai Aida

Directed by Keiko Shimosato Carreiro & Nick Ishimaru


​IRENE -- Anne Kobori

MASTER MU -- Yukihiro Goto


JIMMY -- Michael Carreiro

Irene, a 40-year-old Japanese American woman who is fed up with life abandons everything and goes to a spiritual retreat to become “enlightened.” Little does she know that what awaits her when she arrives in the Zen monastery is a situation far wilder than the one from which she has escaped: There, she gets stuck with a crazy monk and haunted by a ghost of her grandfather who tries to chop her head off (because she “betrayed” her “own country” and “joined the enemy.”) This play portrays the nightmare of a first-generation immigrant trapped in a surreal, outlandish world after she has renounced her name, her native country and even her family, and who, as a result of an unexpected turn of events, comes to reevaluate her identity and life.
