A revival of the play first produced by the ROHM Theatre Kyoto Repertory Premiere series in 2020, it portrays the people who live in a certain seaside town.

Crisis at the Cultural Center is the second play written by Masataka Matsuda for the ROHM Theatre Kyoto repertoire. Following 2021 ’s Seaside Town, playwright and director Masataka Matsuda returns with another new play depicting life in his hometown of Nagasaki. Seaside Town was written by Masataka Matsuda especially for the ROHM Theatre Kyoto Repertory Premiere program. Long based in Kyoto and now in Tokyo, it was his first time to direct one of his own plays in Kyoto in almost ten years. Going back to a play script format while also further developing the creative approaches that marebito theater company has cultivated, the well-received play honed in on the true essence of presenting a story onstage. This is its long-awaited revival.

あらすじ

「文化センターの危機」
文化センターの職員である吉村まりあ、辻井ひかり、中野浩介の三人は不安な日々を送っていた。来年度から民間の指定管理者に移行するのにともない、職員が解雇されると告げられていたからだ。そんな時、中野の大学時代の友人の加藤保がイベントの下見で文化センターを訪れる。週末をキャンプで過ごすために職員たちは山に行き、焚き火をする。一方、コンビニでバイトをしている高校生の里岡泉は美術部の顧問の教師の神長から、土曜の夜空に流星群が見えると教えられ、心をときめかせる。港の岸壁では、密航者を監視する男が佇んでいる。冬の海辺の地方都市、その週末の三日間のスケッチ。

「シーサイドタウン」
この国の西の果て、海辺の町。一軒の空き家に一人の男(シンジ)が住みはじめる。シンジは東京で職をなくし行き場を失い、故郷に帰ってきた。荒廃していく地方の町では凡庸なるファシズムが横行し、シンジは戸惑いながらもその流れに馴染んでゆく。相変わらず地縁・血縁のしがらみも絡みつく。日々の生活の中で「何かの兆し」は常に現れ、起こるべくして起こった事件が報告される。
