New National Theatre of Tokyo

During August 2019, ten students from the Manchester School of Theatre and twelve students from the New National Theatre of Tokyo Drama Studio rehearsed and performed a production of Agota Kristof’s The Monster in both English and Japanese in the Pit Theatre at the prestigious New National Theatre. The production was directed by Maiko Tanaka. It received excellent reviews and was a sell out success. We are highly excited about our partnership with one of the top training institutions in Japan and look forward to developing this relationship in the future.
