The Scene: Every Letter Counts


Every Letter Counts

About a year and a half ago, as part of KULTURA 2011, we got a glimpse of Nina Lee Aquino’s play, Every Letter Counts. Now, it’s WORLD PREMIERE time!

Every Letter Counts will kick off Factory Theatre’s revitalized 2012/2013 season, playing January 26 – February 24, 2013.

Good News! The K and Factory Theatre are offering NINOY NIGHTS–that’s $10 tickets! Keep going for more details!

Every Letter Counts, A Play written by Nina Lee Aquino


Every Letter Counts, a play by Nina Lee Aquino

January 26 – February 24, 2013

Every Letter Counts is a play written by Nina Lee Aquino and directed by Nigel Shawn Williams.

Memory. Mortality. Imagination. Every Letter Counts is Nina Lee Aquino’s very personal re-imagining of Filipino political icon, Benigno Aquino. Struggling to find her own path and haunted by her uncle’s voice, a desperate “Bunny” breaks into the Aquino Museum at night, where past, present, myth and memory collide.

Nina Lee Aquino is a Filipina-Canadian playwright, director, dramaturge, and actor. She was a founding member and Artistic Director of fu-GEN Asian Canadian Theatre Company and is currently Artistic Director of Cahoots Theatre Company and a member of Factory’s Interim Artistic Team. Aquino is a multiple award-winner (Ken McDougall Award, the John Hirsch Prize, Dora Mavor Moore Award) and has been an Associate Artist of Factory Theatre for three years. Every Letter Counts was developed through Factory Theatre’s Play Development Program and is the first Factory production of one of Nina Lee Aquino’s plays.
