This week on Utah NOW we're profiling the latest production from the Plan-B Theatre Company called "Block 8". It's the story of Ken, a young Japanese-American imprisoned by his country in an internment camp and expected to prove his loyalty. The play explores the boundaries in a society's drive to feel secure.
Thank you. I would like to know if Block 8 will be available for purchase on CD or VHS. I enjoyed your program on Utah Now. Will you be reairing this show again in the near future?

The biggest thing behind the internment which no one talks about is if they'd not taken the Japanese out of California - untold number would have been killed. They were safer in the camps. It was bad for them in some ways but good in others.
