Eerily evocative, non-linear, and movement-driven, THE DREAM OF KITAMURA tells the ghostly, mythic tale of Lord
Rosanjin, who believes he is marked for death by the demon Kitamura. His horror is so profound that he hires two bodyguards—but are they who they appear to be? And what of the icy Lady Zuma, and his petulant daughter Otsu? Danger lurks in the House of Rosanjin as great love kills great love.

One of America’s leading playwrights, and TDPS Professor, Philip Kan Gotanda directs this early work, more experimental than most of his plays, in collaboration with choreographer Katie Faulkner. The play stems from a haunting image that appeared to Gotanda in a nightmare: “The dream was very potent. I woke up and, out of it, I built a murder mystery—a feverish, dream play.”
