LETTERS FROM HOME - Bayan Bayanan sa Toronto, premiered last March 7, 2014 in Canada with three performances.  Due to public demand, we are back this September for four performances with new cast member and 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. 
Bayan Bayanan is a modern masterpiece by acclaimed Filipino playwright Bienvenido Noriega, Jr. 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 Manila, Athens, London, Geneva, Paris, Chicago and Toronto.
