A new play at Sound Theatre Company in Seattle examines the notion of idealized Asian beauty, past and present. Nadeshiko takes us into the lives of two women: one in Japan during World War II; the other in contemporary times.

Playwright Keiko Green shared the inspiration for Nadeshiko, as well as the conversations she hopes the play will launch.

Nadeshiko runs through May 6th at Sound Theater Company. CLICK HERE for more information
