New Village Arts Launches World Premiere of Desert Rock Garden

$16-$52

Note: This production has been postponed until Feb. 19, 2022.
New Village Arts, North County's cultural hub, is hosting the world premiere of Desert Rock Garden, a memory play about belonging, family, and creating something beautiful out of nothing.

About the play: This fictionalized historical story about a young orphan and a Japanese immigrant who forge a friendship in the Topaz Relocation Center in 1943 reveals the inherent human ability to transform nothing — loneliness and barren desert — into something long-lasting and precious. February 19, 2022, marks the 80th Anniversary of Executive Order 9066 resulting in the forced removal of 120,000 men, women and children of Japanese ancestry to incarceration camps across America.

You can enjoy the play from Feb. 19 through Mar. 13, 2022 at the Oceanside Theatre Company. Click here to see full calendar.

Admission starting from $16 - $52.
