The play was co-written by Dan Taguchi and Rus McCoy and loosely based on the experiences of Taguchi's mother, who was a child at Manzanar. Various versions of the play have been featured in readings and performances since 2002, but there has been no full production of the play to date.\n</p><p>High school friends Taguchi, a middle school and high school music teacher, and McCoy, a banker and musician/playwright, began work on <i>Manzanar: Story of an American Family</i> in the early 1990s. The first reading of play took place at East West Players in 2002, followed by a reading of a two hour, forty-five minute version, backed with a small orchestra at the Japan America Theater in Los Angeles in 2003. In 2004–05, a 45 minute version of the play saw sixty-seven performances at Los Angeles schools as part of the East West Players' Theater for Youth program. More recently, the play was one of four musicals selected to be part of the ASCAP/DreamWorks Musical Theater Workshop in February 2012 at DreamWorks studios in Los Angeles. The most recent reading took place at Faith United Methodist Church in Torrance, California in April 2013. The play's creators continue to seek funding for a full production.\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<div id=\"RelatedArticlesDisplay\">\n<h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Related_Articles\">Related Articles</span></h2>\n<p>\n</p>\n<div id=\"RelatedArticlesSectionDisplay\">\n<h3><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"\"></span></h3>\n<p>\n</p>\n<ul><li> <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Plays on incarceration\">Plays on incarceration</a></li></ul>\n</div>\n</div>\n<br/>\n<h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">For More Information</span></h2>\n<p>Colborn-Roxworthy, Emily. \"Trading 'Earnest Drama' for Prophecy: Performing Japanese American Internment after 9/11.\" <i>Journal of Dramatic Theory and Criticism</i> 20.2 (Spring 2006): 25–48.\n</p><p>Manzanar: Story of An American Family official website: <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\"></a>.\n</p>\n<!-- \nNewPP limit report\nCPU time usage: 0.064 seconds\nReal time usage: 0.067 seconds\nPreprocessor visited node count: 242/1000000\nPreprocessor generated node count: 1693/1000000\nPost‐expand include size: 2966/2097152 bytes\nTemplate argument size: 252/2097152 bytes\nHighest expansion depth: 4/40\nExpensive parser function count: 0/100\nExtLoops count: 0/100\n-->\n<!-- Saved in parser cache with key mediawiki:pcache:idhash:2015-0!*!0!!*!*!* and timestamp 20180116204531 and revision id 23773\n -->\n<div class=\"toplink\"><a href=\"#top\"><i class=\"icon-chevron-up\"></i> Top</a></div></body></html>",
