The first show is dedicated to 2 masterpieces of Kabuki: Chikamatsu Monzaemon's
"Kezori" and Kawatake Mokuami's "Sannin Kichisa".
The former is about a colorful smuggler and the latter about the adventures of three thieves
whose common features are the same first name (Kichisa) and a strong sense
of honour. Castings are as follows:
The evening show includes a typical Kamigata
play, "Katsuragawa Renri no Shigarami" (Obiya), and the great classic

that ends the program are played by children actors: Nakamura Tokiz˘'s
sons (Baishi, Mantar˘), Nakamura Kash˘'s son (Tanetar˘) and Ichimura Manjir˘'s son (Takematsu).
