Studio 58 presents THE REFUGEE HOTEL
Written & Directed by Carmen Aguirre
Set Design by Yvan Morissette
Costume Design by Elizabeth Wellwood
Sound Design & Composition by Owen Belton
Lighting Design by Jaylene Pratt
Set in a run-down hotel in 1974, only months after the start of the torturous reign of Augusto Pinochet, eight Chilean refugees struggle, at times haplessly, at times profoundly, with the effects of seeing their homeland. More than a dark comedy about a group of refugees who arrive in Vancouver after Pinochet's coup, this play is an attempt to give voice to refugee communities from all corners of the globe. Carmen returns to her alma mater to direct.
WARNING - Age Restriction - 16 or older. The Refugee Hotel contains graphic descriptions of torture, coarse language & mature content.
