Ideal Mini Theatre Arts Productions Presents


December 11th through 14th, 7:00pm nightly @ Ideal Mini School (Please note date change)

Set in a rundown hotel in 1974, only months after the start of the infamous Pinochet regime, eight Chilean refugees struggle, at times hopelessly, at times profoundly, to decide if fleeing their homeland means they have abandoned their friends & responsibilities or not.
Laid bare in the personal story told are universal truths the victims and survivors of potential oppression continue to experience everywhere: the terror of persecution, arrest, and torture, the exhausted elation of escape; the trauma of learning to live again with the losses, betrayals, and agonies of the past; the irrational guilt of a survivor — even the tragedy to surviving the nitres of the past only to have them return to a challenge any hope of a future.

There’s also an optional Chilean information session happening at 6:30 PM for people that want to learn more about the Pinochet regime.
