Teesri Duniya Theatre is dedicated to producing, developing and presenting socially and politically relevant theatre, based on the cultural experiences of diverse communities.Multicultural diversity, intercultural relations,relevance and compelling stories are defining features of our work. We are committed to multiethnic (as opposed to color-blind) casting.

Your support is critical to fulfill our mission and secure our future. We must raise at a least third of our revenues in addition to government support and ticket sales to deliver our program and grow.

An artist must push the boundaries, worry authorities, question existing notions of morality, question what is handed down to them by the status-quo, raise the voice that needs to be raised, and do so with artistic beauty and imagination.

A dark comedy about exile, love and the Canadian resettlement experience

Told from the point of view of a young woman looking back on her childhood,
award-winning writer Carmen Aguirre poignantly chronicles the true story
of a wave of Chilean refugees who are placed at a hotel in downtown Montreal in 1974, following the aftermath of the brutal Chilean coup d’état, one of the watershed moments of the Cold War.
While chronicling the true story of hundreds of thousands of Chileans who resettled across Canada and around the globe, The Refugee Hotel explores Canada’s ability to accept, support and embrace refugees as new citizens.
