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.

Fun show! Great that they incorporate the audience as well as contemporary themes in their work, right down to one of the characters selling treats at intermission! Speaking of which...wish there were more upscale treats, as well as programs that had pictures of the actors with their bios.
