First Aired: May 20, 2001

“Far East,” A.R. Gurney's drama about the complications (and limitations) facing a rich young Navy lieutenant (Michael Hayden) stationed in Japan in 1954. It happens that Lt. “Sparky” Watts (Hayden) has fallen in love with a Japanese woman (Miou). It's a given that Sparky's family in Milwaukee won't approve, and so it's unfortunate that his commanding officer's wife, Julia (Lisa Emery), went to college with his aunt.
