VIDEO: Danny Glover and June Angela Discuss Their Characters In YOHEN


Watch Danny Glover and June Angela discuss their characters in Philip Kan Gotanda's YOHEN. The show runs through November 19 at East West Players Theatre.

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. YOHEN is a co-production between East West Players and The Robey Theatre Company.

The cast stars Danny Glover reprising his role as James Washington and June Angela as Sumi Washington. YOHEN is directed by Ben Guillory, with scenic design by Christopher Scott Murillo, costume design by Naila Aladdin Sanders, lighting design by Michael Ricks, and sound design by Corinne Carrillo.
