Local playwright Tetsuro Shigematsu’s award-winning play has been adapted for virtual viewing, and if you think you’re all livestreamed out, think again. This show tells the story of Mas Yamamoto, a Japanese Canadian internment camp survivor who helped to build the Distant Early Warning Line in the Canadian Arctic during the Cold War. The theatre/film hybrid uses miniatures and some very cool effects—it’s worth the watch.
