Event Navigation

In support of an upcoming production at the Firehall Arts CentreMassey Theatre is excited to be bringing the cast of Refuge to New Westminster for a live reading of the play and a discussion with the artists and local Refugee support workers.

Drawn from the award-winning CBC Radio Documentary Habtom’s Path and nominated for the 2016 Governor-General’s Award for Drama, Refuge tells the story of an Eritrian child soldier/deserter, Ayinom, who comes to Canada searching for his mother, a Refugee settled in Nova Scotia. Even as Ayinom’s plight wins the support of immigration lawyer Saul Ackman, questions about his past begin to haunt Pamela, who has taken him under her roof. Refuge is a provocative story of the pitfalls of seeking sanctuary in today’s suspicious world.

More relevant now than ever before, this play is a powerful, human exploration of issues that Canada is grappling with in the wake of international outrage over U.S. Refugee/Immigration policy and an outbreak of violence in our own country.

This FREE reading will take place in the Plaskett Gallery, so seating is strictly limited to 50 patrons. Reservations are required through Ticketsnw.ca or by calling 604-521-5050
