Play: The Doctor's Tale (Nagasaki survivor's story)

Michael Mears and Leo Ashizawa will give a live performance online, based on a survivor's account of the Nagasaki bombing 75 years ago.

THE DOCTOR’S TALE is a version by actor/playwright Michael Mears of NAGASAKI 1945, an account by a young doctor working in a small hospital in Nagasaki at the time of the second atomic bomb, detailing how he and his few staff, with very limited supplies, survived that day and the following weeks.

At 7.30pm on August 9th, the 75th anniversary of the Nagasaki bomb,
Japanese actor Leo Ashizawa will give a livestreamed reading of this story, with support from Michael Mears and with live musical accompaniment by Chihiro Ono.
(Duration approx. 75 minutes.) or

They hope to raise money through donations to offer the two Japanese performers payment, for Sands Films streaming the event, and for CND.

These performances will be available for a while afterwards as well.
