Performances of Pan Asian Repertory Theatre's No-No Boy began yesterday for the show's limited run through February 18 at Theatre Row's Studio Theatre.

Featuring a script from Ken Narasaki — adapting John Okada's book — and direction from Ron Nakahara, No-No Boy is set after World War II as Japanese-Americans return to the West Coast. The play follows Ichiro Yamada, who struggles to reconnect with the Seattle community, after taking a bold stance on questions of allegiance.

The limited run of No-No Boy is running in tandem with the Day of Remembrance, a day commemorating the Japanese-American internment during World War II. Events in numerous US States are held on or near February 19, the day in 1942 that Executive Order 9066 was signed, requiring internment of all Americans of Japanese ancestry.
