In this acclaimed autobiographical one-man show, Tetsuro Shigematsu (former host of CBC Radio’s The Roundup) tells the dynamic tale of his emotionally distant father whose legacy is felt beyond his lifetime. From the ashes of Hiroshima to swinging 1960s London, Shigematsu shows how his father's incredible personal history has influenced two generations. Though separated by language, culture and history, what truly keeps father and son apart is their similarities.
