events/2006-11-16_farewelltomanzanar.jpg

Award-winning Cornerstone Theater Company actors Page Leong and Leslie Ishii perform an adaptation of the landmark 1972 memoir. The piece captures the novel's finely crafted prose and elegant imagery and offers a child's-eye view of the 120,000 West Coast Japanese Americans robbed of their civil rights and incarcerated for the length of World War II in government prison camps.

Tickets $10 National Museum members, $15 non-members. Advance purchase recommended. For tickets call 213.625.0414.

Sponsored, in part, by East-West Eye Institute, California Civil Liberties Public Education Program, and Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Los Angeles.

In conjunction with the exhibition Ansel Adams at Manzanar
