First staged in 1925, this is an updated version by noted contemporary director Noda Hideki. A comic drama, inspired by a real life event of 1827, this piece takes the age-old theme of samurai honor and revenge, presenting it in a refreshingly modern light with touches of irony. Featuring Nakamura Kankuro V, Bando Mitsugoro X, Nakamura Fukusuke IX
