Hold These Truths Act I and II: On Gordon Hirabayashi’s Courageous Stand
Featuring the Japanese American Civil Liberties Collection from LA Theatre Works
Audiobook Break with AudioFile Magazine is back for a fourth season, featuring the Japanese American Civil Liberties Collection from LA Theatre Works. Today we begin with Acts I and II of Hold These Truths by Jeanne Sakata, directed by Jessica Kubzansky and starring Ryun Yu as Gordon Hirabayashi, with an ensemble cast.
The talented cast, led by Yu, presents Sakata’s powerful play about Hirabayashi’s courageous stand against the US Government during WWII. After he was arrested, he took his case to the Supreme Court, where his case was upheld. It took 40 years before his conviction was overturned.
