‘The Cat Who Went to Heaven’

Presented by Culture Project

Inspired by Bunraku, Japanese traditional puppet theater 

Based on the 1931 Newbery Award-winning children’s book by Elizabeth Coatsworth, this delightful tale is about the intertwined fates of a struggling Japanese artist, his housekeeper, a Buddhist priest from the local temple and an inspirational cat named Good Fortune. The story’s timeless message of compassion for all beings resonates with people of all ages.
