"蔦模様血染御主印"

[Kawatake, Shinshichi III (original play by)].

Shintomi-machi, [Tōkyō]: Shintomiza, Taishō 3 [1914].

 

A shibai banzuke playbill for a performance of the nanshokuthemed kabuki play Tsutamoyō Chizome no Goshuin at the Shintomi-za theatre, Tōkyō, at 3 p.m. on October 8, 1914. Four vignettes of scenes in the performance are featured on the playbill, and both protagonists, Ōkawa and Kazuma, are pictured clearly. The staging of Tsutamoyō was in itself ambitious, as the play was notoriously difficult to stage due to a scene featuring a large fire.

 

One printed leaf, complete. Creases, foxing and light, large stains to extremities. A few small holes, repaired, and some minor tears to extremities. Inscription in brush and ink to verso, visible from recto. 48.7 x 69.2 cm.
