[Comment] In general, in Kabuki, you are supposed to know the synopsis, or you’re supposed to read synopsis in the pamphlet before the show.  But, in the case of “Cocoon Kabuki,” you don’t have to read synopsis before the show.  All you need is to absorb the show.  The synopsis itself comes to you in the form of performances of the actors.  This is definitely the director’s work.  This is a modern Kabuki in contrast to Grand Kabuki in the Kabuki-za theatre.  I call it a modern kabuki because ordinary novice persons unfamiliar to kabuki can understand the performance.  Grand Kabuki is great but requires certain amount of knowledge before the show.
