Written by playwright and fantasy/sci-fi anime script writer Aya Takaha, The Good-Story Murders takes place in a future Japan where people inexplicably begin to perish during middle age. To memorialize their brief lives, a new profession called “Good Story” writers has cropped up, in which a writer will concoct a dramatic death to be realized by a “flash mob” of performers. A famous Good Story writer, whose client list even includes the prime minister of Japan, designates a homeless person to succeed her. What unfolds next in her plot? Miami-born, New York-based director Tai Thompson leads a cast of local actors in this sci-fi suspense play and joins Takaha in a post-show Q&A.
