SAKANAYA SOGORO (Sogoro, the Fish Seller)

A superb Kanzaburo's performance. 

SAKANAYA SOGORO (Sogoro, the Fish Seller)
Sogoro (Kanzaburo), a fish seller, has taken a vow not to drink, but when he learns about his sister's unjust murder at the hands of a daimyo lord, a death that they were told was execution for her wrongdoing, he starts to drink again. Drunk, he storms into the lord's mansion to seek an apology. This play by Meiji playwright Kawatake Mokuami is known for its realistic portrayal of members of the common class during the Edo period and highlights their fierce pride and frustration at the privileges of the dominant samurai class. Also featuring the new Kinnosuke.
