1986 English Kyogen Book

In 1986 Kenny published this anthology of the primary materials used for training in the basic kyogen performance techniques. It includes songs and plays, the latter with detailed stage directions. It was written to serve three purposes, as noted in the preface:

1) as an elementary reference for members of the Kenny and Ogawa Kyogen Players

2) as a textbook for basic training

3) as a general reader for those interested in the Art of Kyogen.
