Returning “Home” from the Camps


Pan Asian Repertory Theatre presents Ken Narasaki’s “No-No Boy,” directed by Ron Nakahara and based on the novel by John Okada, which is a story of Japanese Americans returning to the West Coast in the wake of their internment during World War II. “‘No-No Boy’ is especially topical in this election year, where questions of allegiance and what it means to be an American are asked again,” said Tisa Chang, Pan Asian’s artistic producing director. Playwright Narasaki said, “Even today, the term [“no-no boy”] can spark bitter explosions amongst people who remain angry about the kinds of real life-or-death decisions they and their generation were forced to make.” The Studio Theatre at Theatre Row, 410 W. 42nd St. Jun. 21-25, 7:30 p.m. and also at 2:30 p.m. on Jun. 22. Tickets are $41.25-$77.25 at telecharge.com or 212-239-6200.
