About this show

On an American Naval Base in Japan just after the Korean War, a young reserve Officer arrives seeking romance, adventure and the chance to escape his rich family back home. He serves under a Captain struggling to find purpose to his work in a time without combat and whose wife fills the void in their marriage by obsessively seeking to preserve on base a quaint yet racist social structure. Uniquely crafted with elements of Japanese Kabuki and Noh theatre style, Gurney has created an elegant and compelling saga that is reminiscent of such classic films as From Here to Eternity and the Bridges at Toko-Ri. Directed by Jules Aaron.
