What happened to the women of the Japanese American internment? How did these brave women keep hope in the American dream alive? Based on transcripts, documents, personal testimonies, and interviews with Japanese American female internees, Chay Yew’s Question 27, Question 28 is both heartwrenching and inspiring, weaving stories of the struggles, resilience and courage of Japanese American female detainees held in the American internment camps during World War II.
Followed by a Q & A session with playwright Chay Yew.
