The play will run at the EX Theater Roppongi in Tokyo from November 16 to November 23.

An earlier stage play ran in March 2016, and another stage play ran in November 2018.

Kusanagi — the creator of Mugen Spiral, Game X Rush, and NG Life — launched the Yona of the Dawn manga in 2009 in Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine. Hakusensha shipped the manga's 30th compiled book volume on August 20. Kusanagi previously stated in August that the manga is "around 70% complete."

Viz Media licensed the manga, and it shipped the 19th volume in North America on August 6. The company describes the story: "A red-haired princess loses her family and her kingdom—now she must rise and fight for her throne!"

The series has also inspired a 24-episode anime and several original anime DVDs.
