On Monday, October 26th, the cast of after the quake read the full script at the National Nikkei Museum and Heritage Centre. Here is what a member of the audience said after the reading:

It was great! Surprised just reading can visualize the image like that! I'm thinking of going to the play as well!

And some pictures of this nice evening:

after the quake is already getting a great response, and we're 3 weeks from opening! Check out CBC's interview with Richard Wolfe "Murakami's Super-Frog to appear on Vancouver stage", the Vancouver Observer, and Julie Burtinshaw's blog.

The story of Frog, a giant creature who must battle the evil Worm that lives beneath a Tokyo bank tower, is shot through with humour, including the witty dialogue for which Murakami is famous.
