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