Set in 1954 in a Puget Sound community divided among fishermen and farmers, whites and Japanese-Americans, Snow Falling on Cedars
is a courtroom drama, a mystery, a love story and, in flashbacks, a social commentary on the angry residue of World War II and the anti-Japanese hysteria that led to the creation of internment camps. Kabuo Miyamoto is charged with murder, and it turns out that his wife's spurned white lover, Ishmael, holds the information that could set him free. The island's prejudices, jealousies and ancient grievances threaten to boil over into an act of injustice from which there will be no return. Based on David Guterson's 1994 award-winning novel, the play makes for a moving and intimate theatrical experience. Playwright Kevin McKeon expertly captures the beauty and mystery of Guterson's first and most successful novel.
