MANILA, 2018 — Following a critically acclaimed and sold-out run last September, Theatre Titas and Duende Theatre, in partnership with Z Hostel and PLUD, are proud to bring back the 50th anniversary production of Dr. Paul Dumol’s literary classic ANG PAGLILITIS KAY MANG SERAPIO for one weekend only this November!
Considered by many to be the Philippines’ first post-modernist play, ANG PAGLILITIS KAY MANG SERAPIO sets the audience in a courtroom of beggars to watch a trial unfold. Today’s defendant is an elderly beggar named Mang Serapio, who is accused of harboring a child, which affects the communal income of the association of beggars, the federaçion. As the trial pushes through, we see the flaws in the federaçion’s judicial system, which may feel all too familiar.
“CONFIDENT, UNPRETENTIOUS, DECISIVE, CLEAR.”
DR. PAUL DUMOL
Since its inception 50 years ago, Paul Dumol’s gripping and dark masterpiece remains relevant and has been studied and staged by schools and theatre organizations alike.
“REINVIGORATES A PERIOD PIECE WORTHY OF ACCLAIM”
The cast of the previous run will reprise their respective roles this November, with Jacques Borlaza returning as the titular Mang Serapio. Lian Silverio and Ronilo Balbieran will alternate as Unang Tagapagtanong, and Andrea Fe returns to the role of Ikalawang Tagapagtanong. Japoy Eusebio will preside over the titular trial once more as Hukom.
“SO INTIMATE, YOU CAN SMELL THE FILTH OF A COURTROOM”
Returning to the federaçion are Jigs Sumera, Siel Cleigh Evangelista, Seleen Simora, Roznel Destajo, Alyana Dalisay, John Mari Bonifacio, Angelo Galang, and Mil Prado.
The rerun of this immersive theatrical experience will run at The Ruins at Poblacion from November 23 – 25, 2018, with performances at 8pm on all dates and 3pm matinées on Saturday and Sunday.
