Synopsis


Gaman - 'patience', 'perseverance', 'tolerance', 'self-denial'.


Tomomi, a young Japanese woman stands at the hull of a ship staring out across the water to her new American life in the years prior to the Hiroshima bombing.


There are stars in her eyes and a crackling radio pulled to her chest as she drifts towards a country, and a future, that resists her arrival.


The Art of Gaman is an aching exploration of displacement and loss of cultural identity when you find yourself in a country that considers you an enemy.


When forgetting your past is shameful, but remembering brings even greater pain, Tomomi must harness the strength to find beauty in the struggle and carve out a new life for herself and be true to who she really is.


The Art of Gaman was one of 6 plays shortlisted for the American Playwriting Foundation's prestigious Relentless Award.
