COMPETITION: Win Tickets for Sadler’s Wells Theatre

Win Tickets for Anjin: The Shogun and The English Samurai at Sadler's Wells Theatre!

Sadler’s Wells Theatre in London is presenting a remarkable new production – Anjin: the Shogun and the English Samurai, which will be performed from 31 Jan 2013 9 Feb 2013.  Japan Centre has a pair of tickets for one lucky winner to go and see the show!

This stunning play is based on the story of William Adams, who is known in Japanese as Anjin-sama. Adams is believed to be the first English person to have travelled to Japan, landing in 1600. Soon after arriving in Japan, he became a key advisor to the shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu and built for him Japan’s first Western-style ships.

Anjin: the Shogun and the English Samurai:  Performance Summary

Washed ashore in a strange and exotic land, Anjin soon finds himself as the trusted adviser to the powerful Shogun Tokugawa, drawn to the heart of a dangerous clash of cultures and struggle for power, whilst war threatens to erupt all around. Torn between two worlds and two lives, Anjin must decide who he really is, and where he really belongs.
An epic and compelling tale of friendship, honour, love and sacrifice, this beautifully staged new production stars the celebrated Japanese actor Masachika Ichimura alongside Stephen Boxer, Yuki Furukawa and an international cast direct from Japan and the UK. It has been a big hit in Japan and is now being performed in London in English and Japanese, with surtitles in both languages.

    My favourite Japanese food that I can cook myself is tempura vegetables, rice and a dipping sauce!
    Will Adams was a Kentish lad, born very close to where I live! Would be lovely to win tickets to see the play about Anjin-san.
