Yangtze Repertory Theatre's production tells a story of a gay Chinese man who comes back home to Hawaii and begins a journey of reconciliation between his chosen identity and the heritage he left behind.
His week-long stay opens wounds with his father and sister that never healed, aggravating Don’s struggle to find love and belonging in his life. "June is the First Fall" asks: what compels people to cross mountains and seas to another country, another continent, and another culture to find their true selves? What are the journeys we take to find home and belonging?
See it if you are interested in a story about a young gay man's coming to terms with his traditional Chinese family's acceptance.
