Fringe in Sketch: ASHES ASHES (Yellow Bicycle Company)

Shuttling between 80s New York and 50s Hiroshima, this new play explores imagined encounters between a Japanese-American reporter, a Japanese survivor-turned-prostitute, and the pilot and co-pilot of the Enola Gay. An exploration of the costs of total war and the minds of its apologists.
