Chile Con Carne and Other Early Works
Chile Con Carne, ?QUE PASA with LA RAZA, eh?, and In a Land Called I Don’t Remember
By Carmen Aguirre

With perceptive, unflinching wit, these three early plays from award-winning Chilean Canadian writer Carmen Aguirre document the hardships, horrors, and heartache of exile, revealing the far-reaching effects of dictatorial violence and terror. Highlighting the fresh perspective refugees bring to North American society, Chile Con Carne and Other Early Works also provides essential context for her more recent plays, Refugee Hotel, Blue Box, and The Trigger. Aguirre’s funny, poignant, and biting explorations of refuge and recovery are as pertinent now as when they were first written.

Award-winning author and actor Carmen Aguirre has written and co-written more than twenty plays. Her critically acclaimed memoir, Something Fierce: Memoirs of a Revolutionary Daughter, won CBC Canada Reads 2012 and is a number-one national bestseller. Her second memoir, Mexican Hooker #1 and My Other Roles Since the Revolution, was a CBC Best Book of 2016.
