Production Notes

× Nov 19-Dec 4

The Firehall Arts Centre presents the world premiere of Manami Hara’s new work, Courage Now. Courage Now tells the story of Japanese Consul Chiune Sugihara who helped over 6000 Polish and Lithuanian Jews escape the Nazis in 1940. Going against his government orders, he issued more than 2000 handwritten visas, risking both his life and his career. Some of those whose lives were saved have families living in British Columbia today. Courage Now is produced by the Firehall Arts Centre in association with Vancouver Asian Canadian Theatre.

The lobby will open one hour prior to show time.
