    Juan Tamban

    Malou Leviste Jacob
    Edited by  Apolonio Bayani Chua

    Winner, National Book Award, Drama, 1984
    “Juan Tamban is an intelligent play that is able to relate a boy’s life with what is going on in contemporary Philippine society. It portrays quite unequivocably the shallowness of middle- and upper-class social involvement, the futility of ritualistic conventions that are applied to the issues of poverty and child welfare, of the often exhorbitant loss of justice, the price of competent lawyers which the poor cannot afford even if their very lives are at stake.” ?Pablo Tariman, Sunday Times Journal
    Quezon City: Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA), 1984
    ISBN: No Record
    157 pages
