Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Keiko Agena, June Angela, Ron Bottitta, Kurt Kanazawa, Suzy Nakamura, Greg Watanabe, Ryun Yu

Poetry & Drama • 2 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

With poignant grace, Keiko Agena, June Angela, and Suzy Nakamura lead a stellar cast, playing three Japanese-American sisters who find hope, heartache, and hard-won humor when they return to their family farm in California after four long years locked away in a Japanese internment camp during WWII. They had planned to pick up where they left off, but their father and mother are gone, and even the deed to the farm has turned to dust. Listeners can hear the pressures of politics, racism, and family separation. The performance is followed by an excellent panel discussion focusing on how 120,000 U.S. citizens were "relocated" to camps during the war. The discussion features Japanese-American artists, including George Takei of "Star Trek," who was 5 years old when he was interned. Important and powerful. B.P.
