Sound Theatre Company presents the world premiere of Keiko Green’s Nadeshiko to kick off their 2017 Season: AMPLIFY! – Raising Women’s Voices, devoted to women writers and directors.

Nadeshiko follows the story of two women: A young woman in Japan during World War II, who takes on the role of caregiver to soldiers soon to be flying to their deaths. A young American woman in 2016, Risa takes on a peculiar gig from Craigslist in order to pay her rent. As personal and sexual boundaries blur, the stories of two generations of women intersect in the discovery of power within idealized Asian beauty.

The term “nadeshiko” refers to a flower which has come to symbolize the personification of an idealized Japanese woman. During the final days of World War II, young women (referred to as the Nadeshiko) were enlisted by the Japanese army to comfort Kamikaze pilots before their final mission.

Sound Theatre Company, coming off their second Gregory Award win for Outstanding Theatre Company of the Year, is thrilled to kick off 2017 with a bold new original premiere from Keiko Green as part of their 2017 Season AMPLIFY! Raising Women’s Voices.

    It sounds like an empowering event for women, which I sorely need. My partner and I have been looking for an event to take us past our comfort zone and see different perspectives on what it means to be women.

    I’ve heard about this show for so long and it’s finally here! The stories of women, and more importantly women of color, have long been missing from theater, and this show is putting those stories front and center. I would love to see a performance. Thank you!

    I have a friend who is a feminist.

    I am a woman in leadership. I am interested in the unique challenges we face. In Japan and in WWII the challenges must have been significant. Would love to see this.

    I am a Ph.D. student at NYU with a strong interest in gender studies and always on the outlook for cultural productions worth including in my scholarship (and I think my date would also very much enjoy attending this play)
