From Wednesday, October 26th to Sunday, November 13th, Teesri Duniya Theatre presents The Refugee Hotel at the Segal Centre for Performing Arts Studio (5170 Côte-Ste-Catherine).

A dark comedy about exile, love and the Canadian resettlement experience.

Written by Carmen Aguirre

Directed by Paulina Abarca-Cantin

Featuring:  Charles Bender | Pablo Diconca | Braulio Eliser | Craig Francis | Ziad Ghanem, Shanti Gonzales | Juan Grey | Gilda Monreal| Sally Singal | Mariana Tayler | Vera Wilson Valdes

Told from the point of view of a young woman looking back on her childhood, award-winning writer Carmen Aguirre poignantly chronicles her highly personal story of a wave of Chilean refugees who are placed at a hotel in downtown Montreal in 1974 following the aftermath of the brutal Chilean coup d’état, one of the watershed moments of the Cold War. Hundreds of thousands of Chileans resettled across Canada and around the globe; The Refugee Hotel explores Canada’s ability to accept, support and embrace refugees as new citizens.

Performed in English with Spanish-language surtitles. 

There will be a talkback with invited guests after each matinee performance.

 The play contains language and presents images that may be disturbing to young audiences.
