菠蘿麵包Pineapple Bun is a new play by Howard Dai. Revolving around a bakery in Taipei, the protagonist must confront their diasporic guilt as they visit their hometown. It is a study in nostalgia. A poem to the moon. A lottery. A legend. A tribute. A futile gesture. A testament of blind faith. A celebration of everyday hope.
A free public showing of a 20-minute excerpt will be held on January 29th, 4 p.m. at the Playhouse Studio, and there will be a post-show discussion after the performance.
