Dilemma Dilemma

written by Toshinobu Kojo

translated by Sayuri Suzuki

directed by Anthony Lau

A college student, a rice wholesaler’s wife, and the deputy chief inspector of the Nuclear Security Inspection Office are all interviewed by government officials.

These seemingly unconnected interviews slowly reveal a connection to the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident. Dilemma, Dilemma touches on fundamental issues of human behaviour, morals and ‘doing the right thing’ when faced with impossible challenges

This script in hand performance will be translated for audiences and will be followed by a Writer's Talk at Japan House on Friday, 28 September 2018.
