Yabuhara Kengyo II was certainly there.
Therefore, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all those who have contributed to the production of this play.
It was they who gave the play's main character, a blind boy from Tohoku, a good eye.
The boy was killed at the age of twenty-eight, and I'm sure he had nothing to do with this world when he was killed.
--- Hisashi Inoue

Sugi no Ichi was born blind, and stealing and threatening people are commonplace, and he ends up killing people.
Killing and killing and killing, making his hands smeared with blood, doing all his evil,
Relying on the power of his own body and money, he climbs to Kengyo, the highest rank for the blind in Edo.
A boy who has flown from the Tohoku region to Edo is swept away by the great current of fate.
Kengyo Yabuhara II's evil deeds, a lifelong account of the world of darkness.

"The afterlife will be born in the open. Then let me worship your mother's face."

When it was performed in 2012, he said, "Now, this is the only person who will play Kengyo Yabuhara."
Mansai Nomura, who even said that
The long-awaited revival of "Picaresque" with a diverse cast.
Nobuhiko Chiba's guitar reminiscent of the Tsugaru shamisen colors the stage.
The rare villain drawn by Hisashi Inoue will be seen again by Tamiya Kuriyama's direction, continuing from the last time!

★ First day comment ★
・ Tamiya Kuriyama (director)
When I get involved in Mr. Inoue's play, I realize once again how rich and dense his plays are.I felt that the play was filled with countless questions, and it was a pleasure to receive them.For actors and audiences alike, it's rare to spend so much energy. "Yabuhara Kengyo" is a work that resonates with the present age, giving us hints to think about.

・Mansai Nomura
The teamwork of Mr. Kuriyama and the cast, who are familiar with Mr. Kuriyama's direction, has become a more evolved "Yabuhara Kengyo" where the structure of each piece emerges.I think it turned out to be a performance that you wouldn't believe it was the first day, and I was able to get a sense of fulfillment that surpassed that of the first performance.I would like to see many customers.

・Noriko Nakagoshi
I had been eager to appear in a production directed by Mr. Inoue and directed by Mr. Kuriyama.At the same time, I once again felt the wonder and difficulty of this play.It's like a big mountain, and I have to overcome it, and I think it would be a waste if I didn't overcome it.

・ Atsushi Yamanishi
The day has finally arrived.Counting from rehearsals, I think that today is one goal, but there are many things that I realize again by performing in front of the audience, and I have just reconsidered today that this is the start.I would like to do my best from tomorrow.

・Mancho Tsuji
The first day is like walking a tightrope, and it's nerve-wracking to hit the first day of any show.This time, I was participating in the replay, so I felt even more pressure.I am relieved that I have successfully crossed the rope.
