THE STORY OF CROW BOY explores the intriguing life story of Taro Yashima who wrestled with human brutality, racial discrimination, and the ravages of WWII to build work of social conscience, compassionate insight, poetic visual form, and ultimately-of joy. Yashima reminds us what it means to be human, and offers understanding into the complexities of cultural survival. This production draws on his autobiographical and fictional books including the Caldecott Honor Award-winning CROW BOY (1956) about a young boy who learns to sing the "voices of crows" in defiance of his years of being bullied.
Created by Masanari Kawahara, Sandy Spieler, Steven Epp and Momoko Tanno.
This production was named one of the 10 best plays of 2016 by Graydon Royce of the StarTribune and is back by popular demand for a special three day run!
