Mansai Nomura and six actresses challenge Sado Koshaku Fujin, the highest achivement in the plays by Yukio Mishima!
Presented at Setagaya Public Theatre in March 2012

Sado Koshaku Fujin and its poetic and meticulous style represent Yukio Mishima’s highest achievement in his plays.
The shocking content made its premiere in 1965 a “scandal,” and since then, the play has been praised internationally and drawing attention at every performance.
Paris in the deeply decadent mood in the late 18th century, where the absolute monarchy was at its final stage. Renée, Madame de Sade, holds on to faithfulness to her husband Marquis de Sade, who is full of grotesque scandals and is arrested and jailed repeatedly due to his reckless behaviors. Madame de Montreuil, Renée’s mother who is concerned about honors and morals, schemes a plot to separate him and her daughter, but Renée is firmly decided and they severely confront each other. After the French Revolution, her husband is finally released from the jail. What is the truth hidden in the mysterious action that she takes then?
The six women, who interfere with and confront each other in spite of their dialogues in an incomparably elegant and ornate style, are played by actresses with vivid presence: Yu Aoi as Renée, Minami as Anne, Misuzu Kanno as Baronne de Simiane, Marie Machida as Charlotte, Rei Asami as Comtesse de Saint-Fond and Kayoko Shiraishi as Madame de Montreuil.
The director Mansai Nomura has long been attracted by and attentive to the exquisite style of Mishima.
He has directed and played the leading parts in Machigai no Kyogen (The Kyogen of Errors) and Kuni Nusubito (based on RichardⅢ) that fused Shakespeare and Japanese traditional performing arts and Macbeth with a bold scenography and five actors. He won the Kinokuniya Theatre Award and Asahi Performing Arts Award with Atsushi—Sangetsuki, Meijinden that was based on novels by Atsushi Nakajima.
As an artist who embodies and inherits the 600-year tradition of noh and kyogen, he knows the sonic beauty of Japanese language and works on the play focusing on “bondage through words.”
