Shonagon by Nicole Vardon at Bussey Building


Shonagon, written & directed by Nicole Vardon, at the CLF Art Cafe at Bussey Building, in Peckham, south London, from 10 to 27 April 2013.

The statue Fudo Myo-o is stolen from auction at Sotheby's. Or was it stolen from Japan? The British Museum are up in arms and Patricia MacBurney is sent to Japan to smooth over the cracks. Reporter, Aisha Pinkerton is thrust into the middle of this whirlwind political episode to cover the statue's travels, furthering her own career whilst neglecting her own fatherless children, who search for him behind her back. Tomoko Hara is determined to get the sacred statue back to its rightful owner. But who is the Fudo Myo-o's rightful owner? Will all truth be revealed? Will there be enlightenment?

Looking for the best seats...
