One of Japan's most prolific playwrights will be coming to life once again in a production of "La Marie-Vison"! You can be sure that this is going to be a crazy and wild ride. It has been over 40 years since this play has been seen in the U.S. since its last showing by La MaMa Experimental Theatre in 1970, and it should be utterly unforgettable.

This is restricted to those who are 18 years old and over since the show contains nudity and graphic sexual situations.

There will be a live band playing from 7:00pm till 8:00pm too!

"La Marie-Vison" tells the perversely fascinating tale of Marie, a transvestite prostitute who lives in elegant squalor with her dedicated servant. Every day, for eighteen years, Marie releases an exotic butterfly into the open fields of the living room. Every day for eighteen years the beautiful boy, imprisoned in her den, catches and kills it. The beautiful boy is tempted with visions of the outside world, free from the wiles of wicked Marie, but maybe the boy wasn't made for the outside world. Maybe none of us were.
