Product Description

“Peace On Your Wings” is an original musical inspired by the life of Sadako Sasaki,  a 12-year old girl who died from leukemia resulting from radiation caused by the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima.  She was made famous for having folded over a thousand paper cranes to fulfill an old Japanese legend that would grant one wish to anyone who would fold one thousand cranes.  To this day she is a reminder of innocent victims of war, and her story of her thousand paper cranes have inspired a movement of folding cranes for peace.  The musical  juxtaposes Sadako’s true story and the events leading up to her death in November 1955 with a fictional story about a group of her friends who rallied support from around Japan to have a monument built in Sadako’s memory to honor the children victims of the atomic bomb.
