In the aftermath of a terrible earthquake, a heartbroken writer uses his stories to heal a little girl. Adapted from the short stories of Haruki Murakami, Galati’s play brings to life Murakami’s “hallucinatory world where the real and surreal merge and overlap, where dreams and real-life nightmares are impossible to tell apart”.

"...This State Theatre revival has a decided work-in-progress feel, but its spare style allows the quiet, aching irony of Murakami's prose to come through with fresh insight. In "Honey Pie," a writer tells winsome stories to soothe the quake-spooked daughter of a college friend for whom he's nursed a decades-long passion; "Super-Frog Saves Tokyo" concerns an unassuming loan officer who joins forces with the title amphibian to battle a giant worm. Despite occasional awkwardness, the cast of non-Asian actors display charm and heart."
