      "After the War": A Discussion with Philip Kan Gotanda

      Bay Area playwright Philip Kan Gotanda discusses his new world premiere play, "After the War", opening at American Conservatory Theater on March 22. When the United States government imprisoned more than 120,000 Japanese Americans during World War II, San Francisco’s bustling Japantown suddenly became an urban ghost town. But what happened when the Japanese Americans came back? Set in 1948, "After the War" looks at the rebuilding of a community shattered by the effects of war. Gotanda will share his inspirations for the play, the challenges of producing new work and the genesis from page to stage. A discussion with the audience follows his presentation.
