Join to hear tales from survivors of the atomic bombs 75 years ago in live-streamed performances from the stage of Sands Films Studios Theatre, Rotherhithe.
The Priest’s Tale is an adaptation by actor/playwright Michael Mears of one of the survivor’s accounts from John Hersey’s classic book Hiroshima. Father Wilhelm was a German Jesuit priest living in Hiroshima at the time of the first atomic bombing. His account is a compelling and clear-eyed description of his experiences that day and in the subsequent months and years – told with compassion and warmth.
Michael Mears will perform this story live, with live violin accompaniment by Chihiro Ono.
