"The Wife Who Spoke Japanese In Her Sleep" is the first play of Stagecraft’s 2012 season… a quirky comedy/drama written by award-winning New Zealand poet, novelist and playwright, Vivienne Plumb. Described as a “21st century Antipodean Shirley Valentine", this play beautifully portrays Japanese culture while allowing us to laugh at our own Kiwi ways.

Honey Tarbox is an ordinary Kiwi housewife with ordinary quarter acre dreams, until one night she inexplicably begins speaking Japanese in her sleep. Immediately the wheels are set in motion for Honey's extraordinary transformation from suburban housewife into sleep-talking media megastar. Her life starts to grow beyond her house-wife bound existence, but where does this leave her recently retired husband Howard, who thinks only of the Garden Club and his yuccas?

This play celebrates cultural diversity as it showcases aspects of Japanese culture, and director Shannon Tubman is excited about blending elements of Japanese Kabuki theatre with modern audiovisual effects.
