Thu July 15 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$10 – $25

by Fay Kanin and Michael Kanin
Directed by David Furumoto

Presented by University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Department of Theatre and Drama / University Theatre

In a forest grove, a samurai is found dead, his wife assaulted, and a notorious bandit is captured. But as the mystery of the crime unfolds, witnesses tell very different stories of what happened. Based on the stories by Ryunosuke Akutagawa that were adapted into the iconic 1950 film by Japanese master Akira Kurosawa, “Rashomon” shows the elusive nature of truth.

Director David Furumoto leads cast members Nan Asuncion, Reez Bailey, Ben Delheim, Allison Hesselberg, Liam McCarthy, Ryan Siddell, John Wang, and Rae Wasson in a dramatic retelling of this influential and powerful story.

Content Warning: This play contains mature content including depictions of physical violence and sexual assault.
