Description

This page from The Web 1976 features photographs from the University Players' production of the play “The Teahouse of the August Moon” in February 1976. “The Teahouse of the August Moon” is an American war comedy written by John Patrick based on the novel by Vern Sneider. The play focuses on an officer of the Army of Occupation stationed in Okinawa, Japan during the post-World War II U.S. occupation and satirizes the Americanization of Okinawa. His duty is to teach democracy to the Japanese. According to the Collegian>/em>, the University Players borrowed authentic geisha costumes from Washington D.C. that were highlighted in a geisha fan dance.
