RETIRE-MEN, a Collaborative Theater Play by Japan, Philippines and Thailand at the CCP


The Japan Foundation Manila invites everyone to watch RETIRE-MEN, a collaborative theater play by Japan, Philippines and Thailand on January 27 and 28, 2018 at the Tanghalang Jose Batute (Studio Theater) of the Cultural Center of the Philippines.  RETIRE-MEN is a humorous play about the trial and errors of Thai, Filipino and Japanese people who share their countries with one another.

Presented by the Cultural Center of the Philippines and Theater Company Rinkogun, RETIRE-MEN features a young man investigating the actual conditions of “Retire-men,” or Japanese people who move to Southeast Asian countries.  What lies behind their seemingly carefree and peaceful second lives?  Then there are the people who struggle to accept Retire-men and the harsh realities facing those who cross the borders to find employment.
