Compelling, powerful, and undeniably moving, Hold These Truths is a story that stands the test of time. This critically-acclaimed play stars Joel de la Fuente (Man In The High Castle) as Gordon Hirabayashi, a U.S. Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient who fought against the forceable removal and mass incarceration of people of Japanese ancestry in America during WWII.

Hirabayashi’s journey, from his time as a young man fighting injustice in America to his final days as an educator and activist in Canada, demonstrates his passion and hunger for freedom. It is an inspiring quest of what one can do to fight inequality, a tenacious reminder of history, and a reflection of how we, too, can change the future if we hold on to these truths.

Hold These Truths
 is making its international debut at The Cultch Historic Theatre in Vancouver after a celebrated U.S. tour.

“…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..” – NEW YORK THEATRE REVIEW
