Announcing NP’s 2021 Season•年度の活動

COVID-19 has affected countless people and disrupted the way we live our lives. 2020 was an extremely difficult year, yet we are grateful that our performance group has remained active and productive in these very challenging times. We are hopeful that with the development of new vaccines, treatments and safety measures live performance will soon make a return.

We are preparing two events for 2021. For children we will conduct a series of performance based workshops in English during Mirai Fes 2021. And for our theater lovers we are bringing you an American classic, Thornton Wilder’s Our Town.

Our Town by Thornton Wilder is a Pulitzer Prize-winning play that has become one of America’s best known and most beloved shows. The story centers on the residents in the small town of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire. It’s a story of the ‘every-town’, a place we are all familiar with. Grover’s Corners represents core values shared by communities and cultures all across the world.

The show is performed in three Acts, with each act embracing the themes of Life, Love and Death.

Wilder’s writing has been praised for his beautiful delivery of universal truths. He speaks clearly and openly about what it means to be human. Our Town is a wonderful combination of humor, wisdom and sincerity. It is a fantastic show to experience live and a story that will stay with you forever.
