We’ve partnered with the Arts Club Theatre Company to let you know about their important new play, Forgiveness. Experience the power of Forgiveness.

Based on the acclaimed memoir by Mark Sakamoto, Forgiveness is the powerful story of his family’s harrowing experiences during World War II. Ralph, Sakamoto’s maternal grandfather, was a Canadian soldier of European descent who spent years in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp. Mitsue, his paternal grandmother, was one of the thousands of Japanese Canadians interned by the government. In the face of tremendous adversity and transgressions, they chose not to live a life of anger but instead to embrace forgiveness—a gift of love they passed down to their families.
