Yukio Mishima’s Mysterious Love Story The Lady Aoi Opens Sept 12th!

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.
