The Refugee Hotel
This dark comedy, set in a modest Vancouver hotel, is about Chilean refugees who struggle with the various tragicomic effects of ﬂeeing their homeland. Laid bare in the ﬁctionalized autobiographical details of the play are universal truths that victims and survivors of political oppression continue to experience everywhere – and about love’s power to heal.
Written by Carmen Aguirre
Directed by Juliette Carrillo
