Sunflowers - Le Soleil

by Shimako Murai

translated by Ben Jones

The physical effects of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima are well-known throughout the world, but fewer people outside Japan are aware of the psychological impact it had, and continues to have, on many people - including those born long after it happened.

This single-act play, based on a true story, helps fill that gap by letting us experience both the tragedy and also the courage of the Women of Hiroshima. Although it is harrowing in parts, rather than attributing blame it affirms the desire of the local people to live in the present, look to the future - but never forget the past.
