Four more performances of ‘Snow Falling on Cedars’

The stage adaptation of “Snow Falling on Cedars,” by Kevin McKeon, based on the best-selling novel by David Guterson, will be hold final performances tonight at 7 p.m., Friday at 8 p.m. and Saturday at 2 and 8 p.m.

“Snow Falling on Cedars is a compelling story of enduring love, cultural conflicts and the search for truth. The body of a local fisherman is found tangled in his net, and a Japanese-American fisherman is arrested for his murder. For the residents of an island in the Pacific Northwest, the wartime internment of the Japanese has left a bitter legacy, and the trial of Kabuo Miyamoto polarizes the community even further.

A white newspaperman may hold the key to the accused man’s guilt or innocence. But Ishmael Chambers’ sense of right and wrong is clouded by his enduring love for Kabuo’s wife, Hatsue. Their biracial romance as children had been destroyed by fear and cultural prejudices.

Still wounded, Ishmael must conquer his feelings before simmering pressures from all sides upend the scales of justice and tear the community apart.

“Snow Falling on Cedars” stage production is at Nevada Theatre, 401 Broad Street, Nevada City. Call (530) 265-2990.
