Sunday Night Radio Drama - Arch Oboler - The Family Nagachi

Right after the war when Arch Oboler wrote and produced this play for the first of his series of plays, the internment of Americans of Japanese ancestry was not a popular topic.  Arch Oboler stood just over five feet tall but he had more courage than the bully boys all put together. Again, the theme is appropriate to the beginning of the Trump regime.  

Arch Oboler's Plays

If he were writing today, I would imagine he would be addressing the rampant racism, neo-fascism and neo-Nazism that was put in the ascendant by the Trump regime.   I can imagine him tearing Kellyanne and Reince to ribbons. 

This site gives what I assume is the cast, though it would appear not one of them is Asian, that's something I would guess would be different if he were doing it today.
