 [San Diego International Fringe Festival]


This is FUN with a Japanese flavor!  Go taste it!

Direct from JAPAN! Australian Green Room Awards winner, Theatre Group GUMBO is come 
with World Premiere production to San Diego!
A comedy of crazy Japanese lovers influenced by their individual views on distorted love!
The distorted love spectrum in this story bears the hallmarks that audiences have come 
to expect from GUMBO. They reveal the inconsistent and ridiculous aspects of our behavior 
through aggressive direction, fantastic costume and wonderful music exposing the lies and 
truth of contemporary living.

Fairies lived in the Forest of Truth are children of Puck in Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. And they are making loving couples using their father’s love potion.
But they used it so much, it has already run out. The potion is made from extract of True Love. So they find a man and woman to get lost in this forest and fall in love. However, fairies then reveal the hidden aspects of their hearts. The couple who now know each other’s true reflections, lead this world to unexpected turns.
