The musical, running July 21through August 1, is based on the short stories of Ryonsuke Akutagawa. The plot is described as dealing with "A park. A thief. A priest. A psychic. A murder. A miracle." Ted Sperling directs the production, which features an orchestra of five.

R Shomon has sets designed by Thomas Lynch, costumes by Susan Hilferty, lighting by Christopher Akerlind, and sound by Acme Sound Partners.
