Inspired by the true story of University of Washington student Gordon Hirabayashi, Hold These Truths follows Gordon during the U.S. Government’s decision to forcibly remove and incarcerate people of Japanese ancestry during World War II. Joel de la Fuente stars in Jeanne Sakata's solo show about Gordon Hirabayshi as he fights to reconcile his country's betrayal and to maintain his passionate belief in the U.S. Constitution. In Hold These Truths we witness Hirabayashi as he journeys toward a greater understanding of America's triumphs - and a confrontation with its failures. Joel de la Fuente can be seen on Netflix's original series Hemlock Grove as Dr. Johann Pryce and as TARU Tech Ruben Morales on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. July 31 - August 2 at 7:30.
