Work introduction

Around redevelopment around Omiya Station in Saitama City. A man who visited Omiya for the first time in a few years met an elderly man looking for a wife with dementia. Looking at the changing city and people, "Wandering" between the man and the audience begins. The representative work of Naoki Sugawara, which was talked about in the Urawa version in 2018, will be born in Omiya through re-collaboration with Saitama Gold Theater and Saitama Next Theater.
