Written and Performed by TETSURO SHIGEMATSU A Vancouver Asian Canadian Theatre Production April 25 to May 4, 2019 | Pavilion Theatre Two generations and the silence between them. A funny and moving one-man show by former CBC broadcaster Tetsuro Shigematsu about his rocky relationship with his emotionally reserved father, Akira. From the ashes of Hiroshima to swinging 1960s London, this acclaimed play shows how Akira’s incredible personal history has influenced two generations. Through visually striking live, cinematic vignettes, Tetsuro paints an intimate portrait of the evolving connection between father and son. “A celebration of the extraordinary in the ordinary”—Ottawa Citizen
