One Trunk Theatre is thrilled to be partnering with Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR) on this very important new work. Refuge, a new production spearheaded by Andraea Sartison, Liam Zarrillo, and Caroline Wintoniw that illuminates the current situation in Emerson, Manitoba with a large number of asylum seekers crossing the boarder since early 2017.
This project has been in development for a year and has included multiple workshop and interviews with refugees, sponsorship agencies, private sponsors and most recently the community of Emerson.
Drawing on the traditions of documentary and verbatim theatre, but with a dramatic edge- this project brings to life a vital story happening in our province right now.
The show is in development and set to premiere as part of One Trunk Theatre 2017/18 season.
