by Toshiki Okada
Translated by Aya Ogawa
Directed by Dan Rothenberg

It’s Gen X vs. Gen Y in this offbeat comedy of 21st century manners, that follows the romantic adventures of employees in a Tokyo manga café. A panorama, by one of Japan’s cutting-edge storytellers, of young workers adrift amidst economic turbulence and social change.





“Dan Rothenberg’s pitch-perfect direction teases out performances that capture the way hipsters talk in Williamsburg, as well as in Tokyo.”
– The New York Times, Critics’ Pick

 “Four Stars!”
– Time Out New York
“It’s a treat! Toshiki Okada’s play, about part-time workers at a Tokyo manga café, is a delightful study in frustration.”
The New Yorker

“A major theatrical event.”
