About RASHOMON, the film:

Director : Akira Kurosawa
Accolades : This film won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival, and also received an Academy Honorary Award at the 24th Academy Awards.

Synopsis : The film depicts the murder of a Samurai and the rape of his wife through the widely differing accounts of four witnesses, including the rapist and, through a medium, the dead man. The stories are mutually contradictory, leaving the viewer to determine which, if any, is the truth.

Language : In Japanese, with English Subtitles.


A warrior and his wife are ambushed by a bandit in a bamboo grove. The warrior is slain. His wife, raped. A hundred years later, at the ruins of the Rashomon, a medium calls out to the lost souls. 

Will the truth be known? 

From the team who brought you the sold-out musical If There’re Seasons…, The Theatre Practice returns with the acclaimed suspense thriller, Rashomon. 

Based on the classic short stories of Ryunosuke Akutagawa, this literary masterpiece dwells largely on the subjectivity of perception of the witnesses surrounding an episode of rape and murder in the bamboo grove. Rashomon is a timeless classic with a strong cultural resonance, inspiring and influencing countless adaptations on stage and screen. The most famous screen version won Akira Kurosawa the Golden Lion and the Academy Honorary Award.

With arresting visuals, a new structure of suspense, and stunning manga-inspired character designs, this reworking of Rashomon by The Theatre Practice’s Resident Director Kuo Jing Hong promises to be an entertaining and exciting theatrical experience not to be missed!
