Steep Discounts Available for Groups of Ten or More
Timescape Arts Group presents the world premiere of Ken Narasaki’s stage adaptation of John Okada’s groundbreaking novel No-No Boy from March 26th through April 18, 2010 at the Miles Memorial Playhouse in Santa Monica, and we hope that you'll consider bringing a group to this important new play. We believe this is an excellent way to gather as a community to share our common stories, experiences, and perhaps even provide an opportunity for understanding.
Set after World War II as Japanese Americans return to the West Coast, the play follows draft resister Ichiro Yamada after he is released from prison and struggles to come to terms with the consequences of his choices, while the rest of the community tries to get back on its feet after a war that has uprooted them all. The cast includes (in alphabetical order) Keiko Agena, Emily Kuroda, West Liang, John Miyasaki, Sharon Omi, Sab Shimono and Robert Wu (more information about the production, the cast, the design team, and the process can be found at: nonoboy2010.com)
Produced by the same artistic team produced Innocent When You Dream (Critic’s Choice LA Times, Pick of the Week LA Weekly), which had a successful run at Electric Lodge in Venice and was later invited to perform at the Smithsonian Institute (Washington, DC) in 2008 (www.timescapearts.com), we believe this play will be as moving and thought-provoking as that production, if not even more so.
We will be happy to discuss the arrangement of post show discussions with actors and playwright after the show. Tickets for general admission are $25.00, but steep discounts are available for groups of 10 or more: $15.00 per person. Performances are Fridays at 8:00 pm, Saturdays at 3:00 pm and 8:00 pm and Sundays at 3:00 pm.
Please give me a call if you need additional information or would like to book a group. We look forward to seeing you at the show!
