Broadcasting today on WOWOWステージ at 5pm: 『渦が森団地の眠れない子たち』(loosley translated as ‘Sleepless Children of the Uzugamori Estate’).

t’s been 10 years since Tatsuya Fujiwara and Ryohei Suzuki have been performing on the stage together. Ryuta Hourai of Theatrical Company Modern Swimmers has written and directed the work, and this is the second time that Horai has written a new work for Tatsuya Fujiwara (since Army on the Tree, in 2013).

What is most noteworthy is that the two of them perform as elementary school children this time. They lived in the same apartment complex and were close friends, but little things broke their relationship and ultimately compete to be the leader of the estate. According to Horai, “From a child’s perspective, the world of housing estates is full of entertainment such as war, love, fantasy, horror, and horrible adults.”

You can watch the trailer for the stage production on youtube here:
