HOLD THESE TRUTHS Announced in 2017-18 Seasons of Pasadena Playhouse & Washington DC’s Arena Stage

And the nationwide journey of HOLD THESE TRUTHS continues!  This 2017-18 theater season is very special in that after 10 years, HTT will return home to Los Angeles, where the play had its very first world premiere in 2007 at LA’s East West Players, directed by Jessica Kubzansky, and starring Ryun Yu — and then move on to our nation’s capitol in Washington DC.

This brilliant and beloved team is bringing the play to the beautiful and historic Pasadena Playhouse from May 30 to June 25 — and then, from February 23 to April 8 to DC’s Arena Stage.  What’s more, the Pasadena Playhouse HTT run will be presented in association with East West Players — so this truly feels like a homecoming for Jess, Ryun and me.

Much gratitude to Pasadena Playhouse’s Artistic Director Danny Feldman, and to Molly Smith and Seema Sueko, Artistic Director and Deputy Artistic Director at the Arena Stage, for these two amazing opportunities.  And to Jessica, Ryun, set and lighting designer Ben Zamora, sound designer John Zalewski, and costume designer Soojin Lee — here we go again, guys!

Thanks to all our friends and fans for your amazing support of Gordon Hirabayashi’s story, which continues to move hearts and minds across the country.
