Yellow Fever is an award-winning comic mystery by R.A. Shiomi that follows hard-nosed private eye ‘Sam Shikaze’ as he investigates the disappearance of the mysterious ‘Cherry Blossom Queen’. Set on post-war Powell Street, Yellow Fever deftly navigates complex threads of political intrigue, racism, and police corruption with a sharp wit and fast-paced dialogue. A cornerstone in the Japanese-Canadian theatre canon, this is the first time in over 30 years that Yellow Fever will be presented in the Powell Street area where it is set. This special production will mount Yellow Fever in the style of a radio play.
