East West Players will present Vancouver Asian Canadian Theatre (vAct)’s production of 1 Hour Photo by 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.
