THE DOCTOR’S TALE is an edited version by actor/playwright Michael Mears of NAGASAKI 1945, an account by a young doctor, Tatsuichiro Akizuki, working in a small hospital in Nagasaki at the time of the second atomic bomb, detailing how he and his small staff, with very limited supplies, survived that day and the following weeks. At 2:30 pm EDT (7:30 pm UK time; duration approx. 75 minutes) 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 live musical accompaniment by Chihiro Ono.
- Michael Mears is a British actor who presented the well-received, one-person play, This Evil Thing, dealing with World War I conscientious objectors at the Akron Mennonite Church and in several other eastern U.S. communities in March, 2018. Now, he’s presenting two livestreamed performances from the stage of Sands Films Studios Theatre in London, UK about the survivors of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki 75 years ago.
