About this show

Adapted for the stage by Kevin McKeon from the #1 Best-Selling Novel by David Guterson, this haunting story takes place nearly a decade after World War II. The isolated Puget Sound's white and Japanese-American communities have lived in a quiet but uneasy peace, even through the dark days of internment camps and widespread anti-Japanese war hysteria. When Kabu Miyamoto is charged with murder and it turns out that his wife's spurned lover Ishmael holds the information that could set him free, the island's secret prejudices, jealousies and ancient grievances threaten to boil over.
