    1 of 1 2 of 1

      From March 18 to April 1, Refuge takes over the Firehall Arts Centre (280 East Cordova Street).

      Based on the CBC Radio documentary "Habtom's Path", Refuge tells the story of an Eritrean army deserter who lands in Nova Scotia, where his mother already has refugee status.

      As questions about his past actions and his present enigmatic behaviour arise, his host begins to question if he is a legitimate refugee or a terrorist.

      Refuge is written by Mary Vingoe and is directed by Firehall Arts Centre artistic producer Donna Spencer.

      Tickets for Refuge are available online.
