The Nagoya Players Podcast has a very special guest for our inaugural episode, Mr. Malcolm Duff. Malcolm was a member of the Players during their formative years and started working with the group in 1978.
Malcolm’s career in Japan has been long and distinguished. He has directed numerous stage and television productions and served on the board of the Tokyo International Players. He is a professor at Aichi University where he teaches Drama and Communications, as well as, a professor at Gakushuin University in Tokyo where he teaches Drama and Theater.
In this interview, Nagoya Players’ Artistic Director Shawn Mahler discusses with Malcolm the early days of the Players, the challenges of theater in Japan, the roles theater plays in our lives and the new directions the format is taking. It is a very insightful conversation and we are so very grateful to Malcolm for helping us connect with the group’s origins and past.
