The cast includes:

The play will run at the EX Theater Roppongi in Tokyo for 10 performances from March 16-21.
Viz Media announced earlier this month that it has licensed the manga, and it describes the story:
The fantasy adventure shojo manga series that also inspired the fan favorite anime about a princess who's on a quest to reclaim her throne! Princess Yona lives an ideal life as the only princess of her kingdom. Doted on by her father, the king, and protected by her faithful guard Hak, she cherishes the time spent with the man she loves, Soo-won. But everything changes on her 16th birthday when she witnesses her father's murder!
