Peter Lukesh ’05 and Adam Spaugh ’05 (right) are the Samurai warrior and the bandit in Rashomon.

Rashomon is a fable for our time. Written in 1915 by Ryunosuke Akutagawa (1892-1927), it presents a brutal crime (robbery, rape, and murder) from three viewpoints: that of the violated wife, the bold bandit, and the slain husband, a Samurai warrior who speaks through a medium. Who is telling the truth? All—and none. Moravian presents this powerful drama as the first production of its theater season. Performances are at 8:00 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, November 4-6, and 2:00 p.m. Sunday, November 7. Tickets are $13, $9 students. Ext. 1489.
