This is fun with a Japanese flavor! Go taste it!
-Adelaide Theatre Guide
A comedy of crazy Japanese lovers influenced by their individual views on distorted love!
In the "Forest of Truth", its residents are waiting to reveal the lies found in the human world.
One day, a Man and a Woman step into the forest and immediately they fall in love. However, the residents of the forest then reveal the hidden aspects of their hearts.
The couple who now know each other’s true reflections, lead this world to unexpected turns.
We have Nature So, a young actress and dancer in Hong Kong, is performing with us this time.
There are lots of dancing elements in "JP" and having Nature in our show is giving "JP" a new dynamic dimension.
The boisterous (GUMBO) productions keep me thoroughly entertained with bold visuals, a played-up culture gap, and enthusiastic Japlish. JP is no different. -Festival Freak
The hilariously distorted views of love, however, have an underlying message that will have you talking long after the performance. You’d be mad to miss it.
-Rip it up magazine
Everybody lies. People lie to be accepted, to be loved. That, was the message Theatre Group Gumbo was trying to deliver with JP. -Youth.sg
Asthmatics, you have all been warned. -TODAY For Art’s Sake!
