A Japanese-American family of six from the 1940s. Each has a tag on their coat. They are standing in front an internment camp observation tower.

The Robert H. Jackson Center is pleased to welcome back the remarkable talent of Living Voices (part of TheatreWorks USA) on Monday, April 17 and Tuesday, April 18, 2023 to perform “Within the Silence” in our Cappa Theatre.

This live, interactive performance will help the audience understand the impact of Executive Order 9066, which imprisoned thousands of innocent Japanese Americans during World War II, through the experiences of one young incarcerated citizen. In 1941, Emiko is an ordinary American teenager whose life is changed forever when racism and xenophobia explode against her community after Japan bombs Pearl Harbor, forcing her and every member of her family to find a way to prove their loyalty to a country that sees them as “the face of the enemy.”
