Exterior Set

The famous stories of Akutagawa were adapted for Broadway for Claire Bloom, Rod Steiger, Akim Tamiroff and Oscar Homolka. The wife of a Samurai officer is assaulted and her husband killed by a roving bandit. Contradictory versions of what happened are reenacted at the trial by the bandit, the wife and the dead husband who speaks through a sorceress. Each version is true in its fashion.

"Delicate and dynamic, sensitive and savage, packed with color, suspense and seamy wit. A triumph of stagecraft." N.Y. Mirror.

"Rashomon is pure art of the theatre. Out of a legend, it conjures a mood. No one need despair of a commercial theatre that can deal in elusive materials with so much delicacy, expertness and charm." N.Y. Times.
