A sweet romantic comedy about young love

A Factory Theatre Production
Directed by Nina Lee Aquino

August 1993 – two 2nd generation Filippino Canadian teenagers unexpectedly meet at a rustic cabin in Northeast Saskatchewan, not realizing that they share a family history. Their mothers both came from the Philippines in 1967 to work at the same hospital in small-town Saskatchewan. Beatrice’s mother stayed and married the local hockey hero. Romeo’s family is in Ontario and he’s heading to BC for university. Together they share one magical evening with a boom box under the magnificent Saskatchewan sky.

A funny and touching continuation of the story begun in the hit play Prairie Nurse (PTE, 2018).
