A reading of BLOCK 8 (which enjoyed a sold-out, world-premiere run at Plan-B in 2009 as the centerpiece of Day of Remembrance events) presented as part of Plan-B's Script-In-Hand Series. The play centers on Ken, a young Japanese man struggling with the decision to enlist in the military to prove his loyalty as an American. During his time at Topaz, the Japanese internment camp in Delta, he befriends Ada, the camp's librarian whose son is fighting overseas. The two form an unlikely mother-son relationship as they try to make sense of the upheaval in their everyday lives.
Presented by the Utah Museum of Arts & Museums in conjunction with an exhibition of art work created by artists at Topaz at the Rio Grande Gallery (January 13-February 10). Followed by a post-show discussion with the cast, director, playwright and Lawson Inada, former poet laureate for Oregon and author of two volumes of poetry about the internment camps and the definitive book, Only What We Could Carry.
The Salt Palace has offered free parking to all those attending this event. Enter from the 200 South entrance and tell the attendant you are going to the Buddhist Temple.
