Juan Abad

Juan Abad (February 8, 1872 – December 24, 1932) was a Filipino printer turned playwright and journalist. His main contribution to Filipino theatre was his patriotic plays: the zarzuela ''Ang Tanikalang Guinto'' (The Golden Chain), and ''Isang Punglo ng Kaaway'', the former which, caused his arrest and trial. Some authors credit Abad with the introduction of symbolism to Tagalog drama, a claim which is still to be proven; although he may have been one of the first Tagalog dramatists to use symbolism in their plays.
