When a woman is arrested for murdering her lover's family, a psychiatrist sets out to discover her true state of mind.

Award-winning English actress Kathryn Hunter rejoins Japanese director Hideki Noda and the team behind Soho/Tokyo hit play"The Bee" for a new physical and inventive collaboration. Drawing on the themes of cruelty, imperialism and betrayal, Hideki Noda and Colin Teevan's new play, "The Diver" , ingeniously links the ancient Japanese "Tales of Genji" with a Noh theatre play and a contemporary murder.

"The Diver" is the forth play in a series of Contemporary Noh Theatre. The series are devised the idea of Mansai Nomura, Artistic Director of Setagaya Public Theatre.

'Kathryn Hunter, most shape-shifting of performers, brilliantly encompasses the haunted criminal… you feel there is nothing she can’t play… The transitions are astonishing… I was intrigued, bemused, startled and fascinated.’ ---------------- Michael Billington, The Guardian

‘Startling emotional intensity… Hunter’s performance gleams and changes shape like quicksilver, while Noda… is a powerfully contained presence. There’s excellent support, too, from Harry Gostelow and Glyn Pritchard.’--------------- The Times

'Bewitching… An unforgettable image of the compulsive but futile nature of revenge.’
--------------- Independent

‘The meeting of minds between Japanese writer/director Hideki Noda and Irish playwright Colin Teevan produces oddly thrilling theatre.’ --------------- Metro

‘…that shape-shifting chameleon of an actor, Kathryn Hunter… plays multiple personalities with rare panache.’ --------------- Daily Telegraph
