A short play that takes place in the courtroom, <i>Justice at War: The Story of the Japanese Internment Camps</i> is a fictionalized version of <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Ex parte Endo\">Endo Supreme Court</a> case, including as characters former head of the Western Defense Command General <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"John DeWitt\">John DeWitt</a>, one of the main architects of the forced exclusion of Japanese Americans; Endo's lawyer <a class=\"mw-redirect encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"James Purcell\">James Purcell</a>; Solicitor General <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Charles Fahy\">Charles Fahy</a>, who prosecuted the case for the government; Supreme Court Justice Harlan Stone; and Mitsuye Endo. (In the actual <i>Endo</i> case, neither DeWitt, who had by then been replaced as head of the Western Defense Command, nor Endo herself, appeared before the court.) The student audience plays the role of the judges and is asked to decide the questions posed by the case. \n</p><p>The Boston-based Theatre Espresso formed in 1992 and created <i>Justice at War</i> in 1993, one of several shows for middle and high school audiences it performs based on real historical stories. Theatre Espresso artistic director Wendy Lement and Bethany Dunakin wrote that they conceived the play \"to address a topic that we felt was not adequately covered in the teaching of American history.\"<sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-1\"><a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-1\">[1]</a></sup> The company continues to offer the one-hour performance to schools and other venues. \n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">Brian Niiya</a>, Densho</b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Niiya, Brian</div>\n<h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">For More Information</span></h2>\n<p>Lement, Wendy, and Bethany Dunakin. <i>And Justice for Some: Exploring American Justice through Drama and Theatre</i>.
