A little-known American hero steps into the spotlight in Jeanne Sakata's eloquent one man show, Hold These Truths. The "Truths," of course, are the civil rights proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence and later enshrined in the Constitution. The man doing the holding -- despite enormous pressures from his own government -- is one Gordon Hirabayashi. When the government decides to mass incarcerate all people of Japanese ancestry on the West Coast, it is Hirabayashi, a college student and conscientious objector, who decides to fight for the rights of all Americans. Join him on his journey toward a greater understanding of America's triumphs and failings. Joel de la Fuente ( Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) stars in this absorbing historical portrayal.

We saw Sylvia in 1996, before we had a dog, and loved it. This year, several dogs later, we took our 13 year old daughter. We all really enjoyed the play, the acting, and the sets.

Empty nesters Greg and Kate have moved back to Manhattan after twenty-two years in the suburbs. As Kate tells Greg: “The dog phase of my life is definitely over.” But life has a way of giving you what you think you don’t want. Greg finds Sylvia, a street-smart lab/poodle mix, and brings her home. She promptly becomes a bone of contention between Greg and Kate, testing their marriage to hilarious and touching effect.
In the years leading up to Seattle Rep’s 50th Anniversary, the theatre will be revisiting favorites. This heart-warming comedy is often requested, “Bring it back, please!”
