Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“TV veterans Shuko Akune (Scandal) and Robert Ito (Quincy, M.E.) lead a superb group of Asian–American actors in this sharp, poetic, devastating examination of the culture clash that a young, divorced Japanese woman experiences…Akune is especially good at discovering the vocal freshness and wry humor in young Keiko’s monologues as she learns English by watching television and wraps herself in the laughter and love of her two small children…This production, which captures the play’s 1991 world premiere, deserves to be heard again.” AudioFile
