From Texas Repertory Theatre‘s website:
On February 19, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, designating certain areas of the United States West coast as military zones. This order paved the way for the unlawful imprisonment of 120,000 Japanese Americans in internment camps. Hair like the Sun is the story of one family’s efforts to find kindness and dignity amidst the harsh reality of a nation at war. Based on true events, this inspirational World Premiere new play tells a unique story from this oft-forgotten period, of a young nurse’s aide who witnessed the deplorable conditions, and struggled first-hand with the fear and indifference of a nation only to find redemption and life-changing friendship in the most unlikely of places.
