An East/West Comic Drama

Calligraphy

By Velina Hasu Houston
Directed by Leslie Martinson

Lucie Stern Theatre

March 8—April 2, 2017

Regional Premiere 

Two continents, two cultures, two estranged sisters, and the two cousins determined to bridge the gap between them—all are boldly calligraphed in this international comic drama set in Los Angeles and Tokyo, past and present. East and West collide as biracial American Hiromi and Japanese free spirit Sayuri confront tradition, prejudice, and their heritage of filial duty in one final attempt to reunite their aging parents. 
 
“Intimate, sensitive…the emotional stakes are high.”
