Hard as we try to bury the truth… sometimes it emerges in unexpected ways. Three funny and poignant short plays explore the records we keep and the stories they tell.
In “Dear Diary,” a queer woman discovers 8th grade diary entries detailing her first ever crush on a girl. In “Eguchi,” a woman recounts her great-grandmother’s efforts to preserve her family’s legacy amidst the austerity of World War II Japan. And in “Snow,” congressional archivists piece together official documents torn to shreds by an impulsive president.
