A World Premiere Translation of “Manzanar: Our Town” by Hisashi Inoue


Time & Location

May 7, 7pm–10pm EDT
Sea Dog Theater (New York, NY)



Join us for a world premiere translation of the Japanese play Manzanar: Our Town by Hisashi Inoue.

Highly acclaimed author Hisashi Inoue’s “Manzanar: Our Town” (Japanese title: “Manzana, Waga Machi”) is an exploration of women’s solidarity in the context of Japanese American internment during WWII. Manzanar, Our Town tells the story of five women of Japanese descent who were sent to Manzanar internment camp and ordered to perform a propaganda play which promotes the camp as a dreamland during WWII. Join us for this special sneak peek into the process of interpreting work across language and culture while remaining true to the author’s vision.
