Blyth-premiered play opens in Tokyo

Stratford Gazette

Anne Chislett's Quiet In the Land that premiered at the Blyth Festival in 1982 opens this month in Tokyo.

The dramatic tale of Canadian Mennonites has been translated by Yoshi Yoshihara and directed by Tak Kaiyama, both of whom have visited Blyth in the past. The first Canadian play that Yoshihara translated was Anne Chislett's The Tomorrow Box and with a Tokyo production in 1985, that successful production opened up great opportunities for Canadian plays to be produced in Japan, states a press release.
