Praise for 1 Hour Photo

"1 Hour Photo is a powerful piece of writing that insists that the complex history of Canada, including the wrongs imposed on groups of people, must be remembered." — University of Toronto Quarterly

"Wrestling with questions of life and death, 1 Hour Photo is most heartfelt in its exploration of Yamamoto's life. Ultimately, we are all a little better off for his willingness to share it through Shigematsu." — Mark Robins, Vancouver Presents

“1 Hour Photo animates an extraordinary life with vivid props and projections…the play is a buffet of sensory textures.” — Kathleen Oliver, The Georgia Straight
