About the event

WORDS THAT BURN is a dramatization of the WWII experiences of conscientious-objector William Stafford, Japanese-American internee Lawson Inada, and Chicano Marine Guy Gabaldon--in their own words. The play juxtaposes the history and perspectives of three World War II figures through a blend of poetry and monologue written in their own words. The play's impulse, according to playwright Cindy Williams Gutiérrez, is “reconciliation, to hold multiple points of view and generate community dialogue that spans politics, cultures, and generations”.
