Winner, 8th Biennial One-Act Playwriting Contest, Theatre In the Raw, BC.

As a child, Daiyu saw her family die with the fall of Shanghai. Now sixteen, she is a veteran whore to the Japanese officers, who traffic through her crumbled city. Yet there is one soldier who has been quietly watching Daiyu from afar, turning a sinister plot in his mind to change her fate. This is a story of the "comfort women" of WWII, who were never given a choice.

This production featured Meggy Hai Trang (left) and Adelyne Liu  and was directed by Janet Bentley. Planet Connections Theatre Festivity, New York, NY. Photo by Bryan Cash.
