Mayama Seika wrote plays for all four of the major theatre genres in modern Japan over a period of 30 years. His life in that theatre and his work for it afford us a unique view of the panorama of theatrical development in Japan since the early years of this century. "Kabuki in Modern Japan" focusses on Mayama's contribution to the vitality of 20th-century kabuki. It discusses his plays both in the context of his playwriting career and as part of the living theatre of Japan. Although Mayama died in 1948, his story is continued into the 1980s with a description of a kabuki production of his most famous plays under the direction of his daughter Mayama Miho.
