This award-winning comic mystery follows hard-boiled detective Sam Shikaze through the shady streets of 1970s Vancouver. On a case to solve the disappearance of the mysterious Cherry Blossom Queen, Shikaze becomes entangled in a web of political deception and racism that rouses memories of the Japanese-Canadian internment camps and leads to an unexpected romance. An Off-Broadway hit and New York Times Critic’s Choice, Yellow Fever launched Rick Shiomi’s theatrical career.
The cast includes Mu regulars Kurt Kwan (Sam Shikaze), Sara Ochs, and Eric Sharp, as well as Wade Vaughn and more. Yellow Fever marks the fourth Mu production to be presented in the Guthrie’s Dowling Studio.
Recommended for ages 12+.
