Be one of the first to witness a new play by Alison Minami at this staged reading directed by Michael Hagiwara.
Set in Havana at the dawn of the Cuban Revolution, Face to the Sun is a lyrical, language-driven, play with a multicultural cast. Haunted by memories of his homeland and fearful of another war-driven imprisonment by the Cuban government, Hamada, an upstanding leader of the Japanese Cuban community, decides to uproot his family and return to Japan. But his daughter Flora is running with a guerrilla and Isabel, his Cuban wife, is no longer attracted to him. Each of them must make a choice about love and loyalty to both country and family.
