Watch as these Syrian refugees tell stories of pain, hope in theatre plays

Gesticulating wildly and engaging with fellow refugees from the roof of a blue minivan at a refugee camp near Lebanon's eastern border, young Syrian actors perform in "The Caravan," a collection of stories about the challenges of daily life as a Syrian in Lebanon. At the heart of the narrative: the treatment of Syrian refugees by their new host country.

More than one million Syrians have sought refuge in Lebanon from the conflict devastating their homeland that has killed more than 280,000 people. But once in Lebanon, they face a whole new set of challenges including finding adequate shelter, paying for residency papers, and feeling discriminated against. The young actors will use the van to take their show on tour to refugee camps in Lebanese cities and towns, and across its countryside.
