A Thousand Cranes
Presented by The Imaginary Theatre Company
Touring Only January 10 – April 2, 2017
by Kathryn Schultz Miller
Directed by Suki Peters
In 1950s Japan, 12-year-old Sadako enters a race to be the fastest girl in Hiroshima, but instead finds herself in a race for her life. Diagnosed with radiation sickness years after the atomic bomb, she takes an old legend to heart—if a sick person folds 1,000 paper cranes, the gods will grant her wish and make her well again. Sadako’s courageous journey leads us through both joy and sadness as we share in her story of a triumphant spirit and a hope for peace.
