This piece of theatre is about a small Japanese village that fears the ancient evil inside of the Demon Pond. The bell ringer of the village is rumored to keep the evil at bay with his bell, but the villagers do not believe this and fear the drought that has besieged them. The story is brilliant, even if you can see where it's going at times and it plays so smoothly that you can barely tell it was over two hours long. The acting is great and features some excellent humor from both the story and some wonderful improvisation. Great all around and beautifully captivating, I would love to see this in person someday.
