WAR BRIDE
It is the fall of 1945. Private Alvin Rhodes is returning home to his mother Catherine in Merced, CA. He has an injury that he doesn't want to discuss and a new wife, a Japanese nurse named Yumi. Yumi is greeted with suspicion and fear, even outright hatred. The bombs were dropped only two months prior and Japanese Americans are still unjustly interned at Manzinar, not far away. She is shy and withdrawn, but with the help of Catherine's old friend Richard, a Japanese/English dictionary and 1000 paper cranes, her story is slowly revealed. WAR BRIDE combines sharp, witty dialogue with Japanese Butoh influenced contemporary dance to create a completely new play that will tear at your heart while challenging your ideas of right and wrong.

WAR BRIDE tells a compelling story from the point of view of the women: Catherine, Yumi, the neighborhood girls. Roles for women are far too few in American theater. We have also authentically cast both Japanese and American actors, filling a gap in the Asian acting community. Finally, the lessons of World War Two are relevant in a world where we still lock people up without a trial based upon irrational fears and prejudice.

WAR BRIDE is the fourth production of SkyPilot's 2012 season; its second full season of exclusively producing new plays.

SkyPilot Theatre Company is a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering new relationships with provocative playwrights to develop the most compelling, challenging and humorous new plays for the Los Angeles theatre going audience.
