    The first show is dedicated to 2 masterpieces of Kabuki: Chikamatsu Monzaemon's "Kezori" and Kawatake Mokuami's "Sannin Kichisa". The former is about a colorful smuggler and the latter about the adventures of three thieves whose common features are the same first name (Kichisa) and a strong sense of honour. Castings are as follows:
