Stage Adaptation of Japanese Short Story in Spring

The satirical short story ‘The Nose’ written by Japanese writer Ryunosuke Akutagawa is to be brought on stage in Tehran by theater director Hadi Amel in spring at Paytakht Theater Hall.  No dates were available. 
Akutagawa (1892-1927) is regarded as the “father of Japanese short story”, and Japan’s premier literary award, the Akutagawa Prize, is named after the famous writer.
Nose is his second short story and is based on a thirteenth-century Japanese tale, the author of which is unknown, and may have been revised several times over the centuries, Mehr News Agency reported.  
The Nose depicts a Buddhist priest, Zenchi Naigu, who is more concerned about diminishing his overly long, dangling nose than he is with studying and teaching. He studies religious texts in a desperate attempt to find a person with a nose like his and in private constantly checks his nose in a mirror hoping for even the smallest shrinkage.
