Hot off the presses is Carmen Aguirre’s Chile Con Carne and Other Early Works, which includes three plays from early in her career, as well as a preface to the plays written by the author.
With perceptive, unflinching wit, these three plays 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 Aguirre’s 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.
