The stage is a courtroom. The accused is “Richard”; the prosecutor, “Shakespeare.” Originally performed by playwright Hideki Noda's own theater company Yume no Yuminsha in the 1990s, Sandaime Richard is revived with a multinational cast by Asia’s leading director Ong Keng Sen. The play features a cast including kabuki actor Kazutaro Nakamura, kyogen performer Doji Shigeyama, former Takarazuka Revue member Seika Kuze, Junko Emoto of theater company Kegawazoku, an accomplished actress active in Singapore and Indonesia, and a Balinese shadow puppet master.
