Virginia Stage Company presents "Dear Jack, Dear Louise" and "Hold These Truths" in repetoire
Sunday, October 17, 2021
"Dear Jack, Dear Louise" by Ken Ludwig tells the story of a military doctor and a Broadway chorus performer’s unlikely romance, entirely via letters, during WWII. "Hold These Truths" by Jeanne Sakata is about an unsung American hero, Gordon Hirabayashi, who fought passionately for the Constitution against an unexpected adversary: his own country. During World War II, he refused to report to a relocation camp with thousands of families of Japanese descent, launching a 50-year journey from college to the courtroom and eventually to a Presidential Medal of Freedom. An inspiring true story of conscience amidst conflict, it is a one-man portrait of American character at its best.
