Tokyo Rose

In association with MAST Mayflower Studios Southampton and Birmingham Hippodrome

Turn back the dial to 1949.

Iva Toguri stands trial accused of being the notorious ‘Tokyo Rose’, a Japanese wartime disc jockey who broadcast Axis propaganda to the Allied forces in the Pacific. But was Iva the villain she was made out to be?

Winner of Edinburgh UNTAPPED and the Les Enfants Terribles Stepladder Award, this electrifying new musical tells the true story of how one strong, American-born woman battled through a journey of self-acceptance, only to return home to a dangerously divided nation.

‘Book as soon as you can… a must-see.’ ★★★★ Musical Theatre Review
