Refuge of Lies featured faculty and grads
Refuge of Lies followed its Off-Broadway premiere with a production at Vancouver's Pacific Theatre. Written and directed by faculty member Ron Reed, Refuge of Lies also features TWU graduates – Erin Mahoney and stage-manager Lois Dawson. The story follows a Dutch World War II refugee whose peaceful Canadian retirement is up-ended when a reporter forces him to confront a dark wartime past. Memory and fantasy collide as long-buried secrets begin to surface and a community is compelled to take sides. Inspired by true events, this compelling drama questions how far compassion can reach and whether the past is ever truly behind us.
