United Solo Theatre Festival One Woman Show "Grandma's Love Letters" 
United Solo Theatre Festival 一人芝居 「おばあちゃんの恋文」
Theatre Row 
410 W 42nd Street, New York

Written and Performed by Yuki Sakamoto

This is a one woman theatre performance embodying the memories of a Japanese grandmother: her life, her relationship with her husband and her experience through World War II. This show is aimed at introducing Japanese culture to the audience including Kimono, Japanese style wedding and paper cranes. It is also aimed at helping people to look upon war and peace through the eyes of a normal Japanese woman. 

私自身の90歳のおばあちゃんと、101歳のおじいちゃん。 2人の出会い、戦争体験、結婚、そして今をラブレターに乗せ、一人芝居でお届けします 「日本文化を海外に伝えること」、そして、日本人が体験した戦争を、過去の歴史ではなく、 同じ普通の日本人が体験した戦争として捉えてもらい、「世界平和について共に考えたい」と願っております。
