The Ampalaya Monologues

There are more things scarier than a ghost, like the fear of falling for someone who wouldn’t love you back, the fear of being single for the rest of your life, or the fear of being cheated on; most people would rather see a ghost than witness their partner flirting with someone else. These are the fears that we encounter in our daily lives and AMPALAYA MONOLOGUES is back to remind us about them.

The Ampalaya MonologuesAfter successfully debuting in Alabang last August, AMPALAYA MONOLOGUES is back this October. The event which features short monologues that are inspired by real love stories and popular memes was a huge hit with its “hugotable” quotes, hilarious punchlines and heartbreaking stories. Aside from all the original monologues which include the crowd favorites “There’s a Basha in All of Us” and “Hanash ng Soloista”, they’ve added a few new monologues that are especially written to complement the event’s Halloween vibe.

(Theater in Alternative Platforms), it will be hosted by Rene Cruz Jr. and also features Spoken Word Poetry courtesy of Zuee Herrera, Louise Meets and Abby Orbeta of Words Anonymous, Rommel Pamaos of LAPIS ArtCom, and Jake Habitan of White Wall Poetry, with Live Arts by Tyang and Quatro of Cavity Collective, and musical performances by Chasing Deadlines and Suicidal Genius. The event will end with an open mic for anyone who would like to pour their haunted heart out on stage.
