★Message from Artist★
How do we build our relationship with nature? Restaurant of Many Orders is a timeless short story written by Japanese author, Miyazawa Kenji, adapted for the stage by Hiroshi Koike. The characters look at the world from the perspective of animals and humans. The corona virus pandemic, a crisis linked to the destruction of nature in our modern society, has forced us to take a look at the relationship between human beings and our civilization. We felt that the timing was perfect to stage this particular story now.
