滝沢家の内乱

加藤研一プロデュース100本記念作品

2011年7月16日。本多劇場。

華やかなベッジ・パードンの後に、じっくりと人に向かい合って揺るがないカトケンを見た。

「八犬伝」を書いた滝沢馬琴の家庭の事情。失明したあと、息子と死別した嫁が馬琴の語りを口述筆記して「八犬伝」を完成させた。その二人の間にあったもの。

カトケンは安心して見られる。信頼して見て、裏切られない。

滝沢馬琴は世間的には成功している戯作者であっても、
本人には忸怩たる思いがあり、人に言えない家庭の事情がある。
精神も肉体も病んで馬琴を理解できない妻と、母に過剰に守られて父の強さについてゆけない病弱な息子と。
それは馬琴自身の仕事がうんだ家族の犠牲だったのかもしれない。馬琴はその思いも抱えて、仕事をし続ける。
世間にとって馬琴がするべき仕事をし続ける。

嫁もまた偉大な作家の舅と何の家事もしない姑とほとんど引きこもり状態になっている夫の下で、彼女が滝沢家にとってするべき仕事をし続ける。

そのふたりが、いつしか同志になってゆくのは当然だ。
ふたりはともに、闘っているのだから。同じ家の中で。同じ屋根の下で。

そして、最後に病魔が馬琴から視力を失うと、嫁は舅の作家としての仕事の同志に昇格してゆく。

二人は共に闘い、
仕事を完成させて、
馬琴が家族の事情から逃れる唯一の場所だった屋根の上に、嫁もまたあがって、二人で並んで座る。

良いシーンだった。馬琴の姿とカトケンの姿が重なった。


人物は二人だけ。脚本では妻や息子も登場するのだが、カトケンが二人だけの濃密な芝居に作り替えたのだという。補いきれないところは高畠淳子さんと風間杜夫さんが声で出演。

ただ、声だけが流れるのは、生身の人間の芝居を見ている感覚がとぎれて興がそがれる面もある。
男性と女性を演じられる役者さんをつかってひとり二役やらせてもおもしろかったのではないかな。
