Playwright: Ryūnosuke Akutagawa
Adaptation and Direction: Lawrence Lei

In a Grove is an early modernist short story consisting of seven varying accounts of the murder of a samurai, Kanazawa no Takehiro, whose corpse has been found in a bamboo forest near Kyoto. Each section simultaneously clarifies and confuses what the reader knows about the murder, eventually creating a complex and contradictory vision of events that brings into question humanity's ability or willingness to perceive and transmit objective truth. This story is often praised as being among the greatest in Japanese literature.
