Guerrillas said, “Your kids are yours until they’re 10. Then they’re ours.”

They had a 9-year-old son.

How far would you go to protect your family? This brand new production shares the real-life experiences of refugees to Canada. Five actors transform into multiple characters in this unforgettable journey, knit together by original music and verbatim testimony.

Discover the personal, human stories hidden beneath the headlines. From Mennonite immigrants who fled Europe after World War II, to the current global refugee crisis, the stories in disPLACE shine a light on the bonds that tie all of us together.

Each performance is followed by an optional talkback with the cast.
