HOLD THESE TRUTHS
The Journey of Gordon Hirabayashi
A solo play by Jeanne Sakata

starring Blake Kushi

HOLD THESE TRUTHS is based on the true story of Gordon Hirabayashi, an American sociologist best known for his principled resistance to the Japanese-American internment during WWII. Jeanne Sakata’s script was inspired by hours of interviews with Mr. Hirabyashi and several of his friends from the 1940s.

“Gordon Hirabayashi should be a household name, like Rosa Parks,” said CVRep Artistic Director, Ron Celona. “When I saw HOLD THESE TRUTHS several years ago, I knew this was a story that must be told, and that I would one day bring it to the Coachella Valley, It was the inspiration for this season’s theme of The American Melting Pot,” Celona explains.

In May 2012, Gordon Hirabayashi was posthumously awarded our nation’s highest civilian honor, The Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Show times are 7:30 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday , with matinees at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday .
