On Thursday, September 12th the acclaimed South African theater artists Fred Abrahamse & Marcel Meyer return to our stage in their hauntingly erotic interpretation of the timeless love story The Lady Aoi – for 8 performances only! As Outer Cape audiences may know, this dynamic duo has been creating fresh approaches to classics in the annual Tennessee Williams Theater Festival for quite a few years – and 2019 will be no exception. In a creative co-producing partnership with TWTF (a first for Provincetown Theater! ) we are hosting Abrahamse & Meyer for the entire month of September, so that they may delve deeper into this year’s festival theme, ‘Tennessee Williams and Yukio Mishima’. Making theatrical magic out of the East-Meets-West world, Mishima’s The Lady Aoi is the first step on this path that also includes their production of the Night of the Iguana, September 26-29.

The South African company of Abrahamse and Meyer perform their acclaimed Noh play September 12-22
In a co-production with the Tennessee Williams Theater Festival, we are proud to bring the world-renowned South African theater artists Fred Abrahamse and Marcel Meyer back to the Provincetown Theater stage with their 2014 TWTF “sleeper hit,” The Lady Aoi for a very limited run of only 8 performances!
About the Play: In The Lady Aoi, an apparition haunts a hospitalized woman while a mysterious nurse looks on. As body and spirit mix, violent thoughts turn erotic, and a deeper window opens onto a time of fierce beauty and lost love.
About the Production: Under Abrahamse’s direction, The Lady Aoi stars Justin Chevalier and co-creator Marcel Meyer, who employ a dazzling assortment of puppets, masks, and costumes in Yukio Mishima’s modern take on a classic 15th-century Noh play.
About the Performances: Running Sept 12th thru 22nd, The Lady Aoi performs Thursdays thru Saturdays at 7pm, with Sunday matinees at 2pm, at the Provincetown Theater, 238 Bradford Street in Provincetown, MA.
