During WWII, more than 120,000 Japanese-Americans were denied their personal freedom by being taken from their homes and moved to internment camps across the country. This specially commissioned ensemble production tells the story of a court battle 40 years later that pitted the U.S. Government against a group of young lawyers. They brought the U.S. Army's duplicitous actions to light and succeeded in getting the 1944 conviction of Fred Korematsu, who had resisted incarceration, overturned. The late Ed Asner, a longtime performer and supporter of L.A. Theatre Works, made a final stage appearance in the play. A discussion with some of the original participants in the case proves that light can finally shine on even the darkest chapters of our nation's history.
