Play/Event Notes


GOD SAID THIS by Leah Nanako Winkler June 2 - 24, 2023

Sisters Hiro and Sophie grew up together in Kentucky, but their lives have taken them down very different paths. When their mother Masako begins chemotherapy, Hiro returns to her family’s messy world as they dig through their past to find a picture they can all fit into. A sharp, funny, and compassionate look at what it means to face the Unknown together.

“A stunning, painfully complicated, funny, and compassionately rendered story of an American family.” - Heidi Schreck
