It was a very interesting play. A lot of history behind.
It was unpredictable. It actually forced me to do some research on
the historical facts about 1968.
I can recommend that to everyone who is interested in learning more
and who is open on other cultures.
Loosely adapted from Hedda Gabler, The Wind Cries Mary explores Ibsen's timeless themes of power and gender politics during the high point of the civil rights movement and '60s rock 'n' roll. Philip Kan Gotanda transforms Hedda Gabler into Eiko Hanabi, a Japanese American woman whose strength and intelligence is handcuffed by the burdens of gender and tradition. However, the political and racial climate of 1968 San Francisco could bring about a new model of freedom and choice for minorities and women.
