About
In this play, Naomi Iizuka has created a carefully textured exploration of the meaning of truth - not just in the art world but in the human heart as well. Taking its title from the series of woodblock prints by nineteenth-century Japanese artist Hokusai (which, contrary to its label, consists of forty-six images of Mount Fuji), the play has several threads, but at its heart is an art dealer and an art historian who discover what they think is an ancient manuscript - a priceless Japanese pillow book - and try to learn whether it's authentic. Their search becomes an erotic game of greed, love, and mental hide-and-seek as the play explores the relationships between feelings and words, objects and photographs of objects, antiques and perfect copies, and a woman's heritage and her physical features.
