I’m directing Velina Hasu Houston’s “Kokoro (True Heart)” at USC’s Scene Dock Theatre!
“… Houston explores Japanese and American ethnic distinctions to often stunning effect. The line between the quick and the dead is a fine one in Houston’s cosmology, where spirits wander freely and the afterlife seamlessly melds with the now. Houston creates a timeless, timely parable of mother love and a woman wronged.” — Los Angeles Times
