East West Players (EWP), the nation’s largest producer of Asian American theatrical works, is proud to present Vancouver Asian Canadian Theatre (vAct)’s 1 Hour Photo, written and performed by Tetsuro Shigematsu (Empire Of The Son, Vancouver Asian Canadian Theatre) and directed by Richard Wolfe, June 12-20, 2021.
Navigating this new world of social distancing spawned the innovative solution to bring vAct’s award-winning production 1 Hour Photo across Canada and to EWP. The production is the fourth offering of the Virtual 55th Anniversary Season of East West Players, Between Worlds, led by EWP Producing Artistic Director Snehal Desai.
vAct collaborated with a Vancouver based film production company, Brightlight Pictures, to produce a high quality, 75 minute cinematic adaptation of 1 Hour Photo accompanied by a live talkback with Tetsuro Shigematsu.
Called, “superbly written and performed,” (Review Vancouver), 1 Hour Photo is a true, moving portrait of a Japanese Canadian man’s quest to find beauty in the depths of a savage century, as he journeys from finding love in a WWII incarceration camp to rebuilding his life as a scientist, businessman, and father. A heartfelt exploration of a life well-lived, 1 Hour Photo employs the use of intricately crafted miniatures to explore the artifact of Mas Yamamoto’s life inside and beyond internment.
