Written by and starring Tetsuro Shigematsu (former ACWW director), Empire of the Son is Tetsuro’s personal story of his relationship with his father. Separated by a generation but connected by blood, Tetsuro and his father speak different languages and possess different values, but what ultimately keeps them apart is their similarities.
The draw: Ricepaper Magazine calls Shigematsu “the voice of our Azn generation." Congratulations to Tetsuro on such a terrific first play!
