BCNC Day at the Lyric Stage

  • The Lyric Stage 140 Clarendon Street Boston, MA, 02116 United States (map)

Join us for BCNC Day at the Lyric Stage on Saturday, December 9, 2017 at 3 pm for Jeanne Sakata's inspirational play, Hold These Truths, the true story of Gordon Hirabayashi, the American son of Japanese immigrants, who resisted internment during World War II.   Michael Hisamoto plays Hirabayashi, a college student and a Quaker, whose hope and unquenchable patriotism over 50 years will leave audiences cheering.

Theatrical magic will be created by the use of three kurogos, “invisible” stage manipulators/dancers in the Kabuki theatrical tradition.  The production’s aesthetics will reflect both Gordon Hirabayashi’s Japanese ancestry and his Quaker upbringing

"An extraordinary relevant message for today!" — Chicago Star Tribune

"Absorbing, rewarding, surprisingly humorous and openhearted!" — Seattle Times

$75 ticket includes an exclusive Meet and Greet with Cast & Crew plus wine and hors d'oeuvres immediately following the play.
