By Jeanne Sakata
A Dramatic Staged Reading of a 90-minute solo play inspired by the life of Gordon Hirabayashi.

Performed by Greg Watanabe

Presented by the Interim Community Development Association and the Gordon HIrabayashi Legacy of Justice Committee, in association with the University of Washington's COURAGE IN ACTION: A SYMPOSIUM ON THE LIFE AND LEGACY OF GORDON HIRABAYASHI

Running concurrently with Theatre Off Jackson's Solo Performance Festival 8

During WWII in Seattle, University of Washington student Gordon Hirabayashi fights the US government's orders to forcibly remove and mass incarcerate all people of Japanese ancestry on the West Coast. As he struggles to reconcile his country's betrayal with his passionate belief in the US Constitution, Gordon begins a 50-year journey toward a greater understanding of America's triumphs---and a confrontation with its failures.
Gordon Hirabayashi was posthumously awarded the Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor in May of 2012, by President Barack Obama.

"In her exquisite play Hold These Truths, Jeanne Sakata explores the extraordinary life of Mr. Hirabayashi....The play is a master class in the personal as political  a play where one man's singular story, so full of heart and heartbreak, can speak to the struggles of an entire nation."
Julia Hochner, New York Theatre Review

"The powerful and moving story of one man, who, in his own words 'could not give up on the Constitution.'"
Steven Stanley, StageScene LA
