Refugee Nation, written and performed by Leilani Chan and Ova Saopeng of TeAda Productions, is based on stories of Laotian refugees and their descendents. A mother lives in the darkness of a South Los Angeles apartment. A father struggles to forget a lost war. A daughter searches for answers about her community. Refugee Nation is about a young generation struggling to understand their history and the silence of an elder generation still healing from the traumas of the U.S. wages Secret War in Laos during the Vietnam War-era.
Benefit for Legacies of War and Center for Lao Studies. Proceeds for Legacies of War will go toward the the Schools Not Bombs Campaign, a special initiative of Legacies and Give Children a Choice to help build schools in impoverished Laotian villages affected by cluster bombs.
