EMPIRE OF THE SON by Tetsuro Shigematsu
Vancouver Asian CanadianTheatre (Vancouver, BC)
From the ashes of Hiroshima to modern-day Vancouver, a funny, emotional portrayal of fathers and sons. Former CBC broadcaster Tetsuro Shigematsu and his emotionally remote father, Akira, shared the same profession, communicating with millions, but not with each other. When Akira’s health begins to falter in his old age, Tetsuro bridges the gap between them with the only object they both understood: a microphone. As he learns about how his own father was once a son, Tetsuro realizes all the ways in which he, himself, needs to step up and become a better dad. An original, multi-media presentation.
