"The season opens with Tea by Velina Hasu Houston. Four Japanese women, all post-World War II immigrants with American servicemen husbands, meet at the home of a fifth, who has committed suicide. They clean up the house, drink tea together, and come to know each other and the dead woman, who haunts the play as a restless spirit. "Without being tough, they are strong," says playwright Houston. "Without being weak, they are gentle. Without being aggressive, they are survivors." First produced by Kumu in 1990, this new production of Tea opens in August 2005."
