The show is translated from Japanese by Leon Ingulsrud and Keiko Tsuneda. Ari Edelson directs a cast that includes Michi Barall, Emily Donahoe, Fiona Gallagher, Trey Lyford, Brandon Miller, David Wilson Barnes, Caesar Samayoa and Ed Vassallo. Opening is March 4. According to press notes, the show is "a surreal dark comedy that examines the growing hikikomori phenomenon in Japan, in which young people (as many as one million) withdraw into their rooms and refuse any contact with the outside world, sometimes for years. . . . A mysterious company sells tiny 'attics' over the internet to people who want to withdraw from society. One man embarks on a quest to find the source of these dwellings after his brother commits suicide in one. On the path to discovering the source are several attic dwellers including a teenage girl and a kidnapper, samurai, polar explorers, soldiers fighting a multi-national war, and many other commonplace and fantastical characters."
This production includes set design by Takeshi Kata, costume design by Junghyun Georgia Lee, lighting design by Tyler Micoleau and sound design by Bart Fasbender.
