disPLACE: Refugee Stories in Their Own Words

A compelling and personal account of refugees to Canada, this world-premiere production uses verbatim testimony and original music to offer a glimpse into the refugee experience. Rooted in the stories of Mennonite immigrants who fled Europe after World War II, and culminating in the current global refugee crisis, this production will explore what it means to be a refugee. As the official launch production of Dark Glass Theatre, each performance of disPLACE will be followed by a talkback with the cast, with a special guest moderator experienced in refugee issues.

Running for two weeks only as part of the SAMC Theatre season, on the TWU campus.

November 22 – December 3, 2016

Dark Glass Theatre Launch Event

There will be a special performance of disPLACE, followed by an official launch reception for Dark Glass Theatre on November 26, 2016. For more information about this event, contact us.


An initiative of the Humanitas Anabaptist-Mennonite Centre, Dark Glass Theatre is founded on the idea that empathy can change the world; that as we learn to know others and know ourselves, we unleash the power of our common humanity; that personal stories of shame, forgiveness, and restoration free us from judgement and enable us to see each other more clearly; and that this process can bring about a compassionate revolution.

My own eyes are not enough for me.
I will see through the eyes of others.

C.S. Lewis
