A solo play inspired by the true story of Gordon Hirabayashi. University of Washington student Gordon Hirabayashi struggles to reconcile his fervent belief in the U.S. Constitution with the government’s orders to incarcerate all people of Japanese ancestry on the West Coast, leading to the 1943 Supreme Court case, Hirabayashi v. United States.


Recommeded for ages 10+ due to mature themes.
