Meet Brian Quirt and Carmen Aguirre!

On January 15 2013,The Great Canadian Theatre Company invites the media to meet Carmen Aguirre and director Brian Quirt of Carmen Aguirre’s Blue Box.

Carmen Aguirre’s Blue Box runs January 15 through February 3 and investigates Aguirre’s remarkable life as an underground revolutionary in Chile. It’s a story of terror, romance, and abandon that takes us from the dangerous mountain passes of Chile to the perilous roller coasters of Hollywood; from an ardent love affair with a TV star, to a passionate love for a revolution that strove to change an entire nation.

The inspiration for this play, Carmen’s memoir, Something Fierce: Memoirs of a Revolutionary Daughter, won the 2012 CBC Canada Reads competition.
