Set in a run-down hotel in 1974, only months after the start of the infamous Pinochet regime, eight Chilean refugees struggle, at times haplessly, at times profoundly, to decide if ﬂeeing their homeland means they have abandoned their friends and responsibilities or not. More than a dark comedy about a group of Chilean refugees who arrive in Vancouver after Pinochet's coup, this play is an attempt to give voice to refugee communities from all corners of the globe. Carmen returns to her alma mater to direct.
