A mysterious company sells tiny “attic” rooms on the internet, perfect for shutting out the world. The English language premiere of a provocative, dark comedy by one of Japan’s foremost contemporary theatre artists.

Reviews of The Attic

“…a smart, sensitive play by the Japanese writer Yoji Sakate… takes us beyond conventional wisdom…”
The New York Times

“The play is ambitiously expansive in its themes: Sakate deserve credit for thinking both about and outside of the boxes he examines.”
Time Out

“…Sakate and the creative team have such sensitive, exciting imaginations that their vision of isolation is a thrill to experience.”
