Garcia (Su Teatro) ACAD Gallery Theatre – Aurora Cultural Arts District | 1400 Dallas St. | Aurora, CO  80010 Group-rate tickets with the Partnership (AAPCP):  $22 ($26/general) | www.teatheatre.org Theatre Esprit Asia offers a unique perspective during Black History Month: a story melding and shaping the intricacies of interracial marriage, culture and Japanese art. Set in California in 1986, “Yohen” is about James, an African American ex-GI, and Sumi, his Japanese wife. After 30 years of marriage, Sumi reevaluates the relationship and separates from James. In her words, she wishes for him to “court” her again. Yohen is a Japanese pottery term that refers to an accident in the kiln firing that results in transformation of the pot. The outcomes are as unpredictable as the evolution of a marriage. In the end, it is up to the observer to decide its beauty. Veteran actors and Denver favorites, Maria Cheng and Don Randle, bring their talents to this compelling story directed by Anthony J. Garcia, Executive Artistic Director of Su Teatro. Cheng plays Sumi, a Japanese woman trying to define herself after 30 years under the label of being James’ wife. She takes pottery classes, hoping to ignite a spark of passion within herself. James, played by Randle, visits Sumi regularly, per her requests. At first, James has a difficult time being away from Sumi. He is unsure how time apart is supposed to bring them closer together, but he...
