Coming Up: August 8, 7 pm
A Staged Reading Written by Kendall Uyeji, conceived by Tom Dang, was commissioned by Nordo for their dinner theatre 2020-2021 season. NIGHT PARADE: THE GHOST FOREST is a preview of a new tale that draws upon Japanese mythology and folklore to generate new shivers and scares for the 21st Century.
When Justin, a white YouTuber, and Mari, his hapa assistant and girlfriend, go to Japan, they are spirited away by the Night Parade of a Hundred Demons. Now Yokai wants to devour them for their wrongdoings and they must tell the story of what happened when they visited the Aokigahara forest or the "Suicide Forest." But both have secrets that get revealed; Mari has to wrestle with what Justin did and what her role is in defending him or letting him go.
