12:15 PM – Staged reading of “Tea” a play by Velina Hasu Houston.
Directed by Kaz Matamura
This year marks the 25 year anniversary of this brilliantly written play.
“A play written with a very deft poetic touch…[Houston] has taken her consciousness as woman and as Japanese American, filtered them through the lessons of history and the experience of parents and others, and brilliantly illuminated a much broader sociopolitical canvas.” —LA Times.
