Based on the award-winning book, “Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes,” “A Thousand Cranes” is the true and poignant story of Sadako Sasaki, a young victim of the Hiroshima atomic bomb.  Diagnosed with radiation sickness, twelve year old Sadako prays for world peace as she folds one-thousand paper cranes.
The play is a moving call for peace and a testament to the power of one person to create change and the values that are cherished by all cultures.  


Today children in Japan and all over the world fold a thousand cranes and lay them at the feet of Sadako's statue in the Hiroshima Peace Park. Their wish is engraved at the bottom of the monument: "This is our cry, This is our prayer, Peace in the world."
