Usual Suspects Studio

Posted by in Past Events

Last night, January 21, Nora’s Playhouse held a successful developmental reading at New York Theatre Workshop (NYTW) as part of NYTW’s Usual Suspects Studio.

From Trinity to Trinity

Original story by Kyoko Hayashi

English translation by Eiko Otake

Dramatic Adaptation by Nora’s Playhouse

Directed by Caroline Reddick Lawson

Performance by Ako

Kyoko Hayashi, a survivor of the A-bomb on Nagasaki at age 14, tells of her pilgrimage more than fifty years later to the Trinity site in New Mexico, test site of the first atomic bomb, and of her life as a hibakusha.

We will be developing the piece further for a public reading in May as part of the Hibakusa Stories Initiative.
