Yohen

By Philip Kan Gotanda
Directed by Ben Guillory
Featuring June Angela

Yohen is a modest, touching drama, loaded with meaning.” – The New York Times

October 27 – November 19, 2017

In Japanese pottery, the term “yohen” refers to unpredictable changes that take place in the kiln. James and Sumi Washington are an interracial couple struggling to maintain their 37-year marriage after James retires from the US Army. The dramatic change in routine prompts questions about life, love, and aging, as the couple attempts to repair what’s broken and decide what is worth saving.
