In 1917 Irish poet William Butler Yeats published At the Hawk’s Well. Often referred to as a "noh play", Yeats's noh-influenced work served to introduce this powerful and evocative form to Western audiences.
Since 2003 Theatre Nohgaku has hosted workshops for poets, playwrights and other writers, as well as musicians and performance artists to help them better understand Japanese noh, to assist them in using noh in their own artistic pursuits, as well as to help develop new material for future Theatre Nohgaku performances.

Theatre Nohgaku needs your support! We’re an international performance group creating new and vibrant works out of our passion for the classical noh drama of Japan. Our love of this extraordinary art form compels us to share its beauty and power with English speaking audiences through the creation and production of original English language noh plays, as well as the performance of classical works in Japanese and to host workshops and educational opportunities for the public to learn more about the world of noh.
