  • Release Date: 2013-05-01
  • Genre: Theater


Set in a run-down Vancouver hotel in 1974, only months after the start of the infamous Pinochet regime, eight Chilean refugees struggle, at times haplessly, at times profoundly, to decide if fleeing their homeland means they have abandoned their friends and responsibilities or not. More than a dark comedy, this play gives voice to refugee communities from all corners.
