NNT Drama Studio Reading Performance: “Himeyuri”
NNT Drama Studio was established in April 2005 with the objective of training the next generation of theatre actors. The programme is led by a faculty of experts in theatrical education and prominent theatre makers from inside and outside of Japan. This summer, students who entered the studio in 2017 will appear on the stage of New National Theatre Tokyo for the very first time.
They will present a reading performance of “Himeyuri”, focusing on the Himeyuri Students Corps mobilized in the Battle of Okinawa during World War II. The play was commissioned by NNT Drama Studio in 2016 and is set to become one of those revered works that’s handed down from generation to generation.
