About this show

Pan Asian Repertory Theatre continues its 30th Anniversary season with Velina Hasu Houston's Tea, which is performed in conjunction with the first National Asian-American Theater Festival, taking place June 11-24 in New York City. Tina Chen directs. Set in rural Kansas in 1968, Tea follows four Japanese war brides as they gather to mourn the loss of their friend, Himiko, another transplant who, like her friends, moved to America after marrying GI's. Following the tragic events that led to her death, her friends gather in Himiko's home to drink tea, comb through her belongings and consider their own lives - the choices they've made and the regrets they carry.
