American Spies

NextStop Theatre
269 Sunset Business Park Herndon

The Hub Theatre (in 2019 residency at NextStop Theatre) presents American Spies and Other Homegrown Fables by Sam Hamashima, directed by Kathryn Chase Bryer.‚Äč News travels across the Pacific on Dec. 7 resulting in foolhardy claims of Japanese sympathizers. As calls for war perpetrate a nation, The Ishii Family undertakes radical assimilation to calm the local police and fearful neighbors. Mixing family testimony and cartoon charm, the Japanese Americans' response to national disaster develops into a sparkling fable on what it means to be family.

BroadwayWorld - Recommended

"...Despite certain production elements, The Hub Theatre's American Spies and Other Homegrown Fables is able to capture some powerful moments and sheds light on the story of Japanese Americans during World War II which needs to be told more both on and off stage."

DCTheatreScene - Highly Recommended

"...The Hub Theatre's rendition, directed by Kathryn Chase Bryer, is the first full production of a play by Sam Hamashima. He describes his work as "the collision between his queer identity and his Japanese-American identity." American Spies is surefooted in its exploration of its characters' multifaceted identities, and it treats the Ishiis with care, making time for moments of softness, humor, and love within the family while their world falls to pieces around them."
