The Nisei & The Narnauks is an all-ages Canadian historical fantasy involving puppetry, mask and music. In the guise of an Alice in Wonderland-like coming of age adventure story, this play re-examines the distressing treatment of Japanese Canadians during World War II and juxtaposes it with the overall treatment of First Nations People.
