Gate Theatre
by Benjamin Yeoh
Genre(s): Drama


The Gate Theatre presents NAKAMITSU in a new version by Benjamin Yeoh.

Ignited by a sudden act of violence, Nakamitsu must make a choice: love versus honour. From the shadows of a seedy underworld, his story unfolds. East and West collide in a startling new version of this classic Noh play, often attributed to Zeami. Benjamin Yeoh’s adaptation of Nakamitsu is a modern ensemble piece performed with live music by Ansuman Biswas.

Nakamitsu is winner of the Gate Theatre & Oberon Books Translation Award 2006.

This award was set up to encourage and reward the vital contribution translation and adaptation makes to international theatre. The judges for the 2006 award were Samuel Adamson (playwright and translator), Penny Black (playwright and translator), Jack Bradley (former literary manager of the National Theatre), Simon Callow (actor, writer, director), Christopher Hampton (director, writer and translator), Nell Leyshon (playwright), and Jatinder Verma (Artistic Director of Tara Arts).

Directed by Jonathan Munby & Michael Ashcroft
Design by Mike Britton
Lighting by Hartley T A Kemp
Sound by Paul Arditti
Music composed and performed by Ansuman Biswas

Cast: Peter Bankole, Matthew Burgess, Richard Clews & Daniel Williams
