DESERT ROCK GARDEN

WORLD PREMIERE PLAY

FEB 11 – MAR 13

DESERT ROCK GARDEN is a memory play about belonging, family, and creating something beautiful out of nothing. This fictionalized historical story about a young orphan and a Japanese immigrant who forge a friendship in the Topaz War Relocation Center in 1943 reveals the inherent human ability to transform nothing — loneliness and barren desert — into something long-lasting and precious.
