We Are Samurai

Digging in the Garden 

Written by Daria Miyeko Marinelli and directed by Ria T. DiLullo, We Are Samurai is a suburban revenge tragedy about four twenty-somethings engaging in petty acts of violence in an effort to absolve a millennia-old offense. As the piece unfolds simultaneously across four different playing spaces, it is up to the audience to choose what to witness. After Josephine returns home to find her cats brutally murdered for a crime she committed in a past life, she enlists her boyfriend to help her avenge her cats’ deaths. What follows is a series of small, violent acts that are mundane and yet deeply tragic in their cyclical nature. Rooted in both contemporary suburbia and the historical traditions of Japanese Theatre, We Are Samurai uses cats, iPhones, and simultaneous action to explore age-old questions of agency and entitlement. **Please note we begin our second and final week of runs this week. I completely understand it is short notice, but we just found out about this award and as a piece of immersive theater, we would love to join this community and conversation. I thank you in advance for anything you might be able to do to accommodate us.
