Sansei: the storyteller (Nov 3, 2022)

THEOP presents Sansei: the Storyteller on Thursday, November 3 at 7:30 in Bernard Childs Auditorium in Deep River. Buy tickets here.

On December 7, 1941, an attack on Pearl Harbour triggered the internment and dispossession of tens of thousands of Japanese Canadians. In an award-winning masterpiece, Ikeda weaves an illuminating and deeply personal tale about his own discovery of where he came from and offers his observations about the internment and how Japanese Canadians found peace.
