Returning after an extended and completely sold out run, Empire of the Son, written by and starring Tetsuro Shigematsu (former host of CBC Radio One’s The Roundup), is the story of two generations of CBC broadcasters and the radio silence between them. Shigematsu’s one-man show is this week’s feature story in the Georgia Straight. (Look for Tetsuro on the cover, dapper as ever.)

Mounted by Vancouver Asian Canadian Theatre (Vancouver), the show runs November 1 through 13, 2016 at the Vancity Culture Lab (The Cultch – 1895 Venables Street) in Vancouver, British Columbia. Tickets and more info available here.
Empire of the Son will be published by Talonbooks in Spring 2017, but early birds who attend this production will have access to books in advance!
