"Misery makes itself: so happiness makes itself
The Lady of the Weeping Willow Tree is a poetic Japanese Fantasy bv Stuart Walker, founder and director of the Portmanteau Theatre. Circumstances demanded the presentation cf a play suitable to the small stage of the Dramatic Club Hall and as The Lady of the Weeping Willow Tree is easily adaptable it satisfactorily accommodated itself to this limited space. The play proved to be an enjoyable one to work upon and for four weeks the cast lived with Memory in the Land of Once Upon a Time, enthusiastically building wonderful cities, laying out magnificent gardens and making infinite seas with an April Pool.
The dramatic struggle in the play exists between O-baa San, an old woman, and the Ciaki of Kokoru, an cater of unrest. O-baa San is lonely and unloved but she hides her unhappiness in her love for the Weeping Willow Tree. The Gaki of Kokoru, in order to become a human being, is required to feed upon human misery or find a perfect faith. Since he believes that misery is more easily found than faith he attempts to make O-baa San confess her loneliness to her taunting neighbors that he may then feed upon her unhappiness. In order that she may complain he causes the spirit of the Weepinig Willow Tree to take human form and become her daughter. Then as O-baa San finds perfect joy in loving her foster daughter, the Gaki sends Riki, a poet lover, to take Aoyagi away from her. However, O-baa San is not sad but rejoices in her daughter's happiness. The Gaki next tries to fill Aovagi’s heart with jealousy and thus cause sorrow between the lovers. O-baa San teaches them trust and happiness as also she teaches happiness to her sorrowing neighbors, O-Katsu San and O-Sode San. When the lovers arc re-united the Gaki then attempts to kill the Weeping Willow Tree as this would cause Aoyagi's death and bring sorrow to all of them. The perfect faith of O-baa San conquers his evil plan and also makes it easier for the Gaki to rise to human life. “Love that has been can never be undone" is the expression of the faith of O-baa San and the Gaki of Kokoru is finally convinced that there is truth in such a philosophy.
