Starting September 14, Book-It Repertory Theatre is pleased to present A Tale For The Time Being, by Ruth Ozeki. Adapted by Laura Ferri and directed by Desdemona Chiang, the play tells an inventive story about a search for home.
A Tale for the Time Being officially opens on Saturday, September 17 at 7:30pm. The shows on September 14 are “pay what you will,” with previews September 15 and 16. Book-it.org describes the play like so:
In Tokyo, 16-year-old Nao’s only solace is her diary. Across the Pacific, Ruth is a novelist living on a remote island who discovers a collection of artifacts washed ashore in a Hello Kitty lunchbox—possibly debris from the devastating 2011 tsunami. As a mystery unfolds, Ruth is pulled into the past, into Nao’s drama and her unknown fate, and forward into her own future. A Tale for the Time Being is a brilliantly inventive, beguiling story of our shared humanity and the search for home.
Running time is two hours and thirty minutes, with a 15-minute intermission. Be sure to save the date for Beyond the Book post-show discussions on September 25 and October 2.
