TOKYO ROSE

by Barry Lowe

Tokyo Rose was the name given to the female announcers who broadcast propaganda over Radio Tokyo, which was beamed to the Allied troops in the South Pacific during World War Two. U.S. born Iva Toguri, however, was the only one charged with treason in an orchestrated witch hunt by journalists and politicos to increase their power and prestige. Using the Andrew Sisters and Uncle Sam as counterpoint, the play explores the gross miscarriage of justice which led to her ultimate tragedy. Tokyo Rose can be performed as a musical or a straight play.
