This page is a supplementary explanation of that.
As I wrote before, Minoru Betsuyaku is the pioneer of the
absurd drama in Japan.
He has been making his enormous pieces ever since 1961.
“Mary had a little lamb” is one of his excellent works, that
was written in 1983 for the late Nobuo Nakamura, Noboru
Mitani and Minako Ide.
Thereafter, the play was first staged on January in
1984 at Jean-Jean Theater in Shibuya. And the play had
presented again and again after that. (The director had been Ryoji Kishida)
And then, after Mr. Nakamura passed away, the member has
changed as now.(The director has been Satoru Yamashita)
Unfortunately, the theater that had many regular customers,
was closed in 2000. The first time on the stage by new
member was at Jean-Jean Theater in that year. It was one of
the last plays as the memory of the theater.
After that we put this play on the stage at some different
Performance record (上演記録） and photograph（フォトギャラリー） can be found on the category that are the left part of the blog.
Come to see and enjoy the world of Minoru Betsuyaku!
