The Ballad of Yachiyo is a tale of illicit passion by Guggenheim-winning playwright Philip Kan Gotanda set in 1919 among the lush cane fields of Hawaii. Inspired by true events in the playwright’s family, The Ballad of Yachiyo follows sixteen-year-old Yachiyo as she reluctantly leaves her impoverished parents to live with sophisticated relatives. Her mother hopes she will learn the Japanese tea ceremony and other refinements that will help attract a wealthy husband. But as Yachiyo acquires civilized graces from her hostess, “Okusan,” she also struggles with a growing passion for Okusan’s handsome, dissolute husband. The Ballad of Yachiyo is a gripping story of poetic imagery by one of America’s leading contemporary playwrights.

An LA Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring June Angela, Takayo Fischer, Dian Kobayashi, Lane Nishikawa, Sab Shimono, Greg Watanabe and Annie Yee.
