BANYAN is a modern-day, multicultural variation on THE WIZARD OF OZ that incorporates Pilipino fantasy, folklore, and humor. A woman, during her ?dream vacation? to the Philippines, embarks on an allegorical adventure sprinkled with aswang (witch) tales, hostages, romance, intrigue, and ?symbolic? terrorism. Her journey through the jungles of the Philippines mirrors her dilemma over her role in a corrupt corporation?s nefarious secrets in a paper shredding room.

BANYAN opens its world premiere production at AATC in November 2005. However, the development of the play itself has traveled through an extensive three-year journey at Locus Arts, Bindlestiff Studio, TheatreWorks, Ma-Yi Theatre, and Fountain Theatre. This production represents the culmination of the play?s evolution.

FINALIST, Seattle Repertory Theatre/Hedgebrook Women?s Playwrights Festival 2003, and the Taper Too Asian American Workshop 2003.
