Last week, local artists featured “REFUGEE NATION: Lao Refugee Stories in the U.S,” the only play that has ever told true stories from the Lao community. The stories included tales of post-ear memories and harsh adjustments living in America. In the video below, Voicewaves interviewed cast members as they did an open rehearsal for the community.
