The Ghost Is Here Written by Kōbō Abe

February 5, 2012 @ 3:00 pm - 12:00 am


Kōbō Abe’s rarely-produced 1957 play, The Ghost is Here, examines the impact of war upon a culture and a nation. Set in the ruins of post-World War II Japan, at a moment in history when the nation was forced to redefine itself, the play uses original music, stylized song and dance, and a multicultural cast to bring Abe’s story to life. As Japan’s people reinvent themselves in the midst of monumental challenges, The Ghost is Here echoes throughout modern day America.
