Western University’s Arts and Humanities Students’ Council Presents 
"The Refugee Hotel" by Carmen Aguirre

Set in a Vancouver hotel in 1974, this dark comedy is grounded in fictionalized autobiographical details that explore the experiences of eight newly arrived Chilean refugees in Canada at the onset of the Pinochet regime. These characters are survivors of political oppression who navigate their newfound realities by forging community with each other, however their exploration of old and new relationships is constantly punctuated by infiltrating nightmares of their recent pasts.
