TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: TheatreWorks Silicon Valley Launches 49th Season with “Hold These Truths”

Jul 12, 2018
TheatreWorks Silicon Valley kicks off its 2018/19 season with “Hold These Truths” by Jeanne Sakata, an inspiring true story following Gordon Hirabayashi, a Japanese-American student who fought internment to a relocation camp during World War II. This Northern California premiere celebrates the human spirit as it chronicles Hirabayashi's journey from college in Seattle all the way to the Supreme Court, and eventually to a Presidential Medal of Freedom. Directed by Lisa Rothe, with Joel de la Fuente starring as Hirabayashi, “Hold These Truths” shares the story of a young man who passionately defends his Constitutional rights against an unexpected adversary: his own country. ”Hold These Truths” is currently playing through August 5, 2018 at the Lucie Stern Theatre (1305 Middlefield Rd.), in Palo Alto, CA.



Joel de la Fuente makes his TheatreWorks debut as Gordon Hirabayashi. He has been seen in movies and on many television shows and such as The Man in the High Castle, Madam Secretary, Hemlock Grove, Nurse Jackie, Hawaii 5-O, ER, Red Sparrow, The Adjustment Bureau, and more. De la Fuente has also performed throughout the United States at theatres including New York Shakespeare Festival, La Jolla Playhouse, The Public Theater, and others.



Jeanne Sakata is an actor and playwright whose work spans across theatre, film, television, and voiceover.



“Hold These Truths” made its world premiere in 2007 at East West Players in Los Angeles. In 2012, the solo play made its Off Broadway premiere at Epic Theatre Company starring Joel de la Fuente, and received a 2013 Drama Desk nomination for Outstanding Solo Performance. Since its world premiere, it has gone on to play throughout the nation including theatres in Boston, Honolulu, Washington, D.C., Portland, and many others.

For tickets ($40-$100) and more information the public may visit TheatreWorks.org or call (650) 463-1960.
