Bayan Bayanan, Letters from Home is a theatrical production of a modern masterpiece byacclaimed Filipino playwright Bienvenido Noriega, Jr., with added scenes by international award-winning playwright/director Anton Juan, PhD. Anton is a Tenured Senior Professor of Directing and Playwriting/Theatre and Social Concerns/ Artistic Director, New Playwright’s Workshop, in the Department of Film, Television, and Theatre at the UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME in Indiana. The play revolves around a group of expatriate Filipinos (Pinoys) in Switzerland in the late 70’s, reckoned to be the start of the global wave of Filipino migration. The Pinoys gather in Manang’s house and reminisce about their life back home in the Philippines and the stories of the families they left behind. The shared experiences and re-creation of Filipino life from varied perspectives of these Pinoys evolve to become their armor against the difficulties and challenges of living in a country not their own and the constant pain of loneliness. Dr. Anton Juan has directed this play in Athens, London, Geneva, Paris and Chicago. Bayan Bayanan sa Toronto is brought to you by our generous donors: Carranza LLP - Personal Injury Lawyer, TFC and Dr. Victoria Santiago & Associates. This production is made possible with the support of community partners: iKubo Media, Event Executives, FilTown, JDL School of Performing Arts, Mother Publishing and Studio Six Productions.
