On Sunday, April 18, Radio Theater presents Hour One of  Sisters Matsumoto.  Thousands of Japanese-Americans were sent to detention centers after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941.  When these American citizens were finally released, many spent years trying to reconstruct lives that had been shattered overnight.  Philip Kan Gotanda chronicles the aftermath of one family's inprisonment.  From LA Theaterworks.
