Children of the April Rain

“Children of the April Rain” began when, upon meeting the play’s main characters, writer William Bryant Doty, combined their Memoirs to create a story of mostly defenseless American civilians facing the Fall of Saigon.  Most stories of the end of The Vietnam War in Saigon are about the evacuation of The American Embassy, however there were smaller, independent charities run mostly by women as the War neared its end and the Viet Cong moved in from the north. “Children of the April Rain” is the story of Friends of Children of Vietnam (FCVN) which got the drop on the American bureaucracy, garnered public attention and forced the beginnings of what would become known historically as Operation Babylift.  Based upon a true story, it is an insider’s account and, as we learn – emerges as the women’s story of the Fall of Saigon.

“Children of the April Rain” was first performed October 12, 2014 at the Gardner Hall Forum Series, Garden City Community Church, Garden City, Long Island, New York.  The play was acclaimed once more on April 26, 2015 at The New Jersey Center for the Arts Vietnam Era Educational Center Theatre at The National Recognition of The 40th Anniversary of the Last Flight Out of Saigon – and, most recently, in the Washington DC area at The Women’s Memorial Theatre of Women in Military Service for America, at the entrance to Arlington National Cemetery November 10, 2015, Veteran’s Day Eve.
