A little-known American hero steps into the spotlight in playwright Jeanne Sakata's eloquent one-man show, "Hold These Truths". Inspired by the true story of University of Washington student Gordon Hirabayashi, this stirring drama spotlights an important but far-too-often forgotten moment in American civil rights history. When the government decides to mass incarcerate all people of Japanese ancestry on the West Coast during World War II, Hirabayashi struggles to reconcile his country's betrayal with his passionate belief in the U.S. constitution and democracy. Join him on his journey toward a greater understanding of America's triumphs and failings. Michael Hisamoto ("Stage Kiss") takes on the role of Hirabayashi in this Lyric Stage Company of Boston production that reflects both the civil rights hero's Quaker upbringing and Japanese ancestry, and features a trio of "kurokos": "invisible" stage manipulators in the kabuki theatrical tradition.
