Persephone Theatre is taking to the virtual stage with the help of Tetsuro Shigematsu and his production 1 Hour Photo. This is the story of a man, confined to a Canadian Japanese internment camp during WWII and gets wrapped up into some of the most important events of the 20th Century. It’s a love story, a true story and it’s a hybrid between live theatre and film. Shigematsu based this tale on his friend’s father’s life and it’s truly heartfelt. Tickets are $20 and there’s a chance for you to do a question and answer with Shigematsu after each show.
