Everything Old is New Again! As the only company resident in the US dedicated to performing Kyogen in English – our annual SORYA! is a SUPERB! BOMBIG! OPA! YOUPI! part of our Season! This years SORYA! will include the Kyogen plays Kaminari/Thundergod, Bonsan/The Bonsai Thief, and Kagyu/Snail.

Join us at NOHspace for for SORYA! featuring the Theatre of Yugen Ensemble Members; Jubilith Moore, Karen Marek, Sheila Berotti, and Sheila Devitt, as we once again polish up a selection of classic Kyogen plays performed in English.

Kaminari – One of the august Thudergods falls through the clouds practically into the lap of a Quack Doctor. He demands treatment form the Doctor only to discover that sometimes the treatment is more painful than the disease. Finally he is relieved by the Doctor (and his exaggerated acupuncture needle) and promises good weather for years to come.

Bonsan – A Bonsai Thief is caught in the act and tries to hide behind one of the small trees. The Owner recognizes the thief as his neighbor who is always begging for one of his trees. The Thief gets his come-uppance when the Owner decides to give the Thief a little teasing!

Kagyu – In Kagyu, we meet a servant who must find a snail for his master and somehow mistakes a wandering priest for just such a creature. The priest decides to have some fun with the situation until at last they all engage in a silly song and dance.
