Each year Hibakusha Stories works with playwright Chiori Miyagawa, a Radcliffe Fellow and professor of theater at Bard College.  In May, 2013, Miyagawa conducted a day-long workshop that began with a conversation with Hiroshima hibakusha Reiko Yamada for 20 students from East Side Community High School at Theater For The New City.  Miyagawa and director Sophia Skiles led the students in a series of exercises, both writing and movement, and then broke them into small groups where they developed, rehearsed and performed one-act plays.
