Empire of the Son

Two Generations And The Silence Between Them

Through a series of audio interviews, playwright Tetsuro Shigematsu discovers vast worlds contained within his emotionally remote father – from the ashes of World War II and Hiroshima to swinging London in the 1960s and work in broadcasting at the BBC. As the playwright learns about how his own father was once a son, he realizes all the ways in which he himself needs to step up and become a better dad. This funny, poignant story of one immigrant family and their intergenerational conflicts reminds us that no matter how far we journey out into the world to find ourselves – across decades and continents – we never stop being our parents’ children.

Written and performed by TETSURO SHIGEMATSU*
Directed by RICHARD WOLFE*

A Vancouver Asian Canadian Theatre production
