RASHOMON STAGE SET

A woodcutter, a thief, a young woman and a samurai meet in the forest.

Each tells a different story of the same event – Just who can you believe?

Directed by Brian Brophy and produced by Cal Tech and Descanso gardens, this fully-staged production was based on Japanese director Akira Kurosawa’s classic film and the Broadway script by Fay and Michael Kanin and edited by dramaturg Ann K. Lindsey. The original bamboo installation and scenography was created by Stephen Glassman, with fresh bamboo harvested from the grounds of the nearby Huntington Museum.
