THE PRIEST’S TALE

August 6 @ 7:30 pm - 8:40 pm

Free

THE PRIEST’S TALE is an adaptation by actor/playwright Michael Mears of one of the survivor’s accounts from John Hersey’s classic book HIROSHIMA.
Father Wilhelm was a German Jesuit priest living in Hiroshima at the time of the first atomic bombing. His account is a compelling and clear-eyed description of his experiences that day and in the subsequent months and years – told with compassion and warmth.
At 7.30pm on August 6th, the 75th anniversary of the Hiroshima bomb, Michael Mears will perform this story live, with live violin accompaniment by Chihiro Ono. (Duration approx. 55 mins.) This event is co-hosted by the Edinburgh Peace and Justice Centre. (A free event – but donations would be gratefully received – to offer the performers payment, for Sands Films streaming the event, and for CND.) These performances will be available for a while afterwards as well…
