The background: two nights ago, star kabuki actor Ebizo Ichikawa, out drinking with friends, got into an argument with other restaurant patrons, and proved less adept at the art of pugilism than the art of kabuki. He returned home with fractured cheekbones, a broken nose and a broken tooth.
The next day, Ichikawa's father, a kabuki star several orders of magnitude greater than his son, held a press conference at which he apologized for his son's behavior.
