About

Stranded in Japan during World War II, a young Japanese American woman was drafted to serve as a radio broadcaster for a propaganda program controlled by the Japanese Imperial Army, and was subsequently tried for treason. Seventy years later, this historic incident is brought to life through a visually stunning mystery, conceived, written and directed by internationally renowned visual artist Miwa Yanagi. Brimming with iconic imagery from her rich body of photographic work, Zero Hour: Tokyo Rose's Last Tape tells the multi-layered story of a woman caught between two nations during the war. This presentation is part of Yanagi's North American tour debut as a theater artist.

Performed in English and Japanese with projected English titles. Recommended for mature audiences.

Performance Timing: 1 hour, 40 minutes, with no intermission.
