The work of Lebanese-born playwright Wajdi Mwawad, who is now attracting attention from around the world, will be directed by Satoshi Uemura, a young Japanese director who has been remarkably successful. "Flame" is a suspenseful and shocking work that unravels the sealed roots of his own family from the unique perspective of the author, who experienced the civil war in Beirut and fled.It depicts the great love of a mother who continues to think of her child. It was made into a movie under the title of Burning Soul (Japanese title), and was nominated for the 2011 Academy Award for Best Foreign Film. , It is full of mysterious charm that is somewhat reminiscent of the Greek tragedy "Oedipus Rex".
We hope that you will come across the bond between mother and child that permeated through the chaos of the civil war through this shocking work, "Homura".

★ Comments after the first day performance
●Since it is a heavy work, I was worried about how it would be received.The cast is a good ensemble, and I think it's a powerful and emotional work.It's a fulfilling and satisfying finish, so I'd like a lot of people to see it.
Satoshi Uemura (director)

● I felt a responsibility to act because the work is wonderful, but I was relieved to have a very good first day.Through the performance, we would like to do our best from tomorrow while receiving the support of the audience.I would like people of all ages to see it, and I would especially like young people to see and feel this work.
Asami Rei

●The first day is over, but this work will continue.I think it's a work that gets deeper and deeper as customers enter.I feel truly grateful to have been given such a role and to have been involved in such a work.I want a world where no one lives like the characters in this work.I hope that the viewers will find love, even if it's just a little bit.
Kenichi Okamoto
