Description

This September an exciting month long festival brings to the UK a new series of 4 contemporary Japanese plays by some of Japan’s most celebrated playwrights. The Festival will include script in hand readings in English, Meet the Writer events and a ‘Lost in Translation’ seminar.

Series 2 in partnership with Japan House, Regent's University London & SOAS

Fri 21 Sep 7pm

On Air

written by Ai Nagai

translated by Nozomi Abe

directed by Kwong Loke

Events set in motion a power struggle at a major Japanese TV station. A critical highly sensitive piece of 'investigative journalism' is halted, just hours before it's due to be broadcast, Chief Editor, Anchor, Director and the Executive Board are summoned to ‘test the air’ against a background of political intrusion as neutrality and opinion, fabrication and truth are brought into question with tragi-comic results.

This exciting script in hand performance will be translated for audiences and will be followed by a Writer's Talk and Translator workshop at SOAS on Saturday, 22 September 2018.
