Event description

Description

Starshine and Clay, an award-winning screenplay written by Kendra Arimoto, will be presented for the first time as a live reading with an ensemble cast of local performers. Starshine and Clay is a story about a Japanese American family’s struggles with identity, love, and intergenerational trauma spanning 75 years. For research, Arimoto relied on her family’s historical accounts and photos, news archives, and Densho’s archives. Starshine and Clay was selected by Francis Ford Coppola and the American Zoetrope as the Grand-Prize winner of the American Zoetrope Screenplay contest. The play reading will be followed by a facilitated talkback and open Q+A on the topic of intergenerational trauma.

Doors open at 6:50 pm
Performance is approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes plus a brief intermission.

Please RSVP, space is limited.

STARSHINE AND CLAY is a remembrance and a reminder; a warning and a prayer. It is the story that I needed when I was a kid, and the story that I hope my children, my people, and the world can one day witness in theatres everywhere… Beginning first with this live reading. – Kendra Arimoto
