Shutaro Oku (Persona 3, Ghost in the Shell Arise stage plays) is directing the play off a script by Jun Kumagai (Hamatora, Persona 3 The Movie #1 Spring of Birth). The play will run at Tokyo's Zepp Blue Theater Roppongi from March 2-6. Tickets are currently on sale.
Funimation streamed the original anime series as it aired in Japan in summer 2014, and it describes the story:
Legendary director Shinichiro Watanabe and famed composer Yoko Kanno are back with a suspense-filled intellectual thriller!
In an alternate version of the present, Tokyo has been decimated by a shocking terrorist attack, and the only hint to the identity of the culprit is a bizarre video uploaded to the internet. The police, baffled by this cryptic clue, are powerless to stop the paranoia spreading across the population.
While the world searches for a criminal mastermind to blame for this tragedy, two mysterious children – children who shouldn't even exist – masterfully carry out their heinous plan. Cursed to walk through this world with the names Nine and Twelve, the two combine to form “Sphinx,” a clandestine entity determine to wake the people from their slumber – and pull the trigger on this world.
