A Catalogue of City Life - T9451608332001 offers an entirely new selection of comic vignettes, including middle-aged bargain hunters who treat shopping as a sport, waiting in the overnight queue for an electrical goods sale, entertaining each other with tall tales of past bargains and a deputy section manager, overwhelmed by the responsibility of entertaining business clients, slowly losing his memory, and maybe his mind, in a parking lot at midnight. As ever, Issey hilariously and touchingly reveals the vulnerable side of the Land of the Rising Sun, with the simplest of theatrical devices - a swift costume change and amazingly versatile hair - combined with a precise and skilful, and apparently effortless, characterisation.Producer Mark Goucher (for Condensed Theatre Ltd). Author Issey Ogata. Author Yuzo Morita. Director Yuzo Morita. Performer Dan Schlesigner (simultaneous translation).
