April - May, 2012
The NNTT has plans to produce a number of contemporary plays from the West which have not yet been staged in Japan, and which have been well-received in their home countries.
For this installment, we present Sixteen Wounded. In 2004, this sensational work opened to positive reviews on Broadway in New York City.
Set in the Netherlands, this is the story of a Jewish baker and a young Palestinian man who ends up working for him through unusual circumstances. Sixteen Wounded depicts the bond that develops between them and their eventual parting, while suggesting that love is not always enough to overcome the weight of history and hatred. It is also a portrait of people who manage to forge a friendship across the boundaries of ethnicity and religion. The play challenges us to ponder the question: What is it that is truly important to us as human beings?
