DisPLACE: Refugee Stories in Their Own Words

… an original production by Dark Glass Theatre.

Nov. 22 – Dec. 3, 2016 (Freedom Hall, Trinity Western University)

Guerrillas said, “Your kids are yours until they’re 10. Then they’re ours.”

They had a 9-year-old son.

Is any sacrifice too great to protect your family? A brand new production, created by theatre artists at Trinity Western University, shares the real-life experiences of refugees to Canada. A diverse cast of actors, each transforming into multiple characters, weave together an unforgettable journey using verbatim testimony and original music.

Discover the personal, human experience hidden beneath the headlines. From the Mennonite immigrants who fled Europe after World War II, to the current global refugee crisis, the stories brought to life in disPLACE offer a unique glimpse into the bonds that tie all of us together. Each performance is followed by an optional talkback with the cast, moderated by an expert in refugee issues.
