Carmen Aguirre

Based on writer and performer Carmen Aguirre’s remarkable life, Blue Box is a story of terror and romance that takes you from the Chilean resistance movement during Pinochet’s dictatorship to a passionate affair with a Hollywood TV star to present-day Vancouver.

Funny, sensual, and moving, Blue Box reveals a woman committed to a cause for which she would have sacrificed everything, yet committed to a man who refused to sacrifice anything for anyone.
Blue Box is a no-holds-barred examination of two core stories that live within me. They both explore the theme of unconditional love in completely different realms: the romantic and the revolutionary, and the tension between the two, ultimately asking where self-love fits in,” said Carmen Aguirre. “I invite you to jump off the cliff with me and go on this wild ride of abandon and absolute surrender to that mighty force called love.”
Carmen Aguirre is an award-winning playwright and actor who has written and co-written over 20 plays, including Chile Con Carne, The Trigger, and The Refugee Hotel. Her first book, Something Fierce: Memoirs of a Revolutionary Daughter, is a CBC Canada Reads 2012 recipient as well as a national bestseller.
Written and performed by Carmen Aguirre, the Arts Club production of Blue Box is directed by Brian Quirt and will perform at the intimate Revue Stage through November 1.
