Internatioanal City Theatre's 20th Anniversary Season continues with Tea, written by Velina Hasu Houston. Peggy Shannon directs.
Five Japanese war brides are thrust into rural Kansas alongside their American GI husbands. Their fate in their adopted land is the heart of Tea, an insightful, lyrical and autobiographical play. Their deeply moving and previously untold stories come to life with thoughtfulness and humor as the women gather together over tea in 1968 to share the poignant drama of their courtship, their arrival in America, their early mistakes with American customs and their growing American families.
