Original music, artistic puppetry, and magical realism allow this bilingual tale to tackle the immigration crisis through a beautiful, unique lens. Chronicling the harrowing journey of one young Honduran girl as she crosses the US border into the inhospitable, barren land of Texas, Refuge is an exploration of empathy and of America – who we are and who we say we are.
This is a bilingual production. All performers should be comfortable with both Spanish and English. Specific language requirements listed with roles.
MARTINA: (f, 30s, Latinx) a Border Patrol Agent, rough around the edges, but still trying to make a difference. Very pregnant. Speaks and understands both Spanish and English. As with all roles, will perform some duties as ensemble - including singing in Spanish & English.
ENSEMBLE FEMALE: (f, 30-70, Latinx) Puppeteer and plays multiple roles including Rancher’s dog, Steph. Fully bilingual - understands and speaks in both Spanish and English.

Theatre Lab Play Submission Policy
Theatre Lab regrets it cannot accept open submissions of plays and musicals. Unfortunately, the cost of reading and processing hundreds of scripts is beyond our modest staff capabilities. We only accept play submissions electronically in the following circumstances:
- You are a writer who in the past has had a play developed in some phase of a Theatre Lab New Play Development Program.
- You are an agent at a recognized literary agency.
- You are either a writer who has had a play developed/presented at one of the theatres of the National New Play Network or are an Artistic/Literary head of an NNPN Theatre.
- You either work as, or were suggested to submit by, the Artistic Director, Associate Artistic Director, or Literary Manager (or equivalent position) at a Professional Theatre. In the case of a recommendation, a note from that person must accompany the submission, as well as their e-mail address.
For information on obtaining literary and theatrical representation, other theaters interested in new plays and script submission procedures, please consult the excellent publication Dramatists Sourcebook, published by Theatre Communications Group, a service organization for the not-for-profit professional theater, available through your local bookstore, online through vendors such as Amazon.com, or directly from TCG Publications at tcg.org. The Sourcebook is published biannually, so you may want to confirm that policies have not changed since the latest publication date.
