Marrow’s Edge is very excited to announce its pioneer production with We are Samurai, written by Daria Miyeko Marinelli and directed by Ria T. DiLullo.
We Are Samurai is a suburban revenge tragedy about four twenty-somethings engaging in petty acts of violence in an effort to absolve a millennia-old offense. As the dramatic action unfolds simultaneously across four different playing spaces, it is up to the audience to choose what to witness.
After Josephine returns home to find her cats brutally murdered for a crime she committed in a past life, she enlists her boyfriend to help her avenge her cats’ deaths. What follows is a series of small, violent acts that are mundane and yet deeply tragic in their cyclical nature.Rooted in both contemporary suburbia and the historical traditions of Japanese Theatre, We Are Samurai uses cats, iPhones, and simultaneous action to explore age-old questions of agency and entitlement.
We Are Samurai runs from September 26-October 6, 2013 at the 133rd Street Arts Center, 308 W 133rd Street, West Harlem, New York.
Performances are Thursday and Friday at 7:30 pm, Saturday and Sunday at 5:00 pm and 7:30 pm.
Tickets: $18, audience size limited to 35. Buying in advance is highly recommended.
