The Woman who Eats Babies and other tales from Yamanashi by Doubtful Sound

5 - 9 July 2022

Architects inspired by a bridge of monkeys, cursed women licking the sick, a shop keeper who hates the number four, adulterous housewives, arguing mountains, and a grave digging, dead-baby-eating woman - these are the tales of the merchant centre of Yamanashi.

Translated, written and performed by Doubtful Sound.

Doubtful Sound is a Japanese theatre company based in London.

Music by Yui Shikakura and others.

Stories originally from:
'Kai Folktales' collated by Rikki Tsuchihashi;
