What does the sport of baseball mean to you? Visionary playwright/director Toshiki Okada (chelfitsch Theater Company) explores this iconic American symbol in his newest play God Bless Baseball.
Incorporating Okada’s distinctive style of hyper-colloquial speech and exaggerated commonplace gestures, the play positions the U.S. as parent and Japan and Korea– where baseball is deeply rooted in popular culture – as brothers heavily influenced by the parent. Featuring Japanese and Korean actors with a stage set by acclaimed visual/video artist Tadasu Takamine, this baseball culture triple-play is sure to be a home run.
Toshiki Okada's God Bless Baseball U.S. tour is supported by the Agency for Cultural Affairs, Government of Japan in the fiscal year 2015, Tokyo Metropolitan Government, The Japan Foundation through the Performing Arts JAPAN Program and the Asian Cultural Council.
