Question 27, Question 28 tells the story of the forced removal and incarceration of Japanese Americans from the West Coast and its aftermath through the voices of a variety of Japanese American and non-Japanese American women. All of the play’s lines come from “interviews, transcripts and testimonials” by women who lived through that experience. The cast includes four characters, three Asian and one Caucasian, who read the lines, with the real-life figure from whose testimony they come first identified. Among the many women whose words are used are Yuri Kochiyama, Monica Sone, Mary Tsukamoto, Yoshiko Uchida and many others, including some non-Japanese Americans such as teacher Eleanor Gerard Sekerak and Eleanor Roosevelt. The cast includes Kirsten Fitzgerald, Emily Kuroda, Jeanne Sakata, and Tamlyn Tomita. A special exhibition tour will take place at 6pm at Alphawood Gallery prior to the performance
