INTERNMENT VOICES

Intermedia Arts

"Two older Japanese American sisters launch campaigns upon each other; one to put her older sister in a seniors home, the other to make her younger sister face up to the true damage done to the Japanese Americans by the internment camps of WW II.  Based upon the life stories of Esther Suzuki, a prominent Japanese American story teller, and David Mura, poet, prose writer and playwright, this play connects two generations of Japanese Americans and their emotional struggle dealing with the legacy of the internment camps."
