About this show

Two brothers inhabit a mysterious, dreamlike apartment. On the day of the elder's birthday, the younger, who is supposed to be studying for college entrance exams, is preoccupied with creating unusual objects for the celebration. Meanwhile, in the upper room, the younger brother's alter egos–derived from his wild imagination and taking the form of two creatures, one with a sheep's head and another with pig features–help with the party preparations. Written and directed by psychiatrist turned Japan's most-talked-about theater artist Kuro Tanino and performed by his company Niwa Gekidan Penino, The Room Nobody Knows lures you into a weird yet funny world hidden deep within the Tokyo metropolis.

Performed in Japanese with English supertitles
