In 2011, a catastrophic earthquake hit Japan.

It was the most powerful earthquake ever recorded to hit Japan, triggering tsunami waves and causing level 7 meltdowns at the Fukushima Nuclear power plant.

It killed somewhere between 18 and 20 thousand people.

A new play called Time’s Journey Through a Room looks at the emotional scars left by this disaster.
