The Cultural Center of the Philippines is proud to set the stage for Tanghalang Pilipino as is stages “Katsuri“, a local adaptation of John Steinbeck’s novel ‘Of Mice and Men‘.

As the play centers on the struggle of sugar plantation workers in Negros, a province beset by land conflicts, audiences will get to understand the varied issues of inequality, and how human relationships can end up affecting a larger group of individuals’ lives and society itself.

KATSURI is adapted for stage by writer Bibeth Orteza, and under the Direction of Carlos Siguion-Reyna. It opens October 4 and will run until October 27 at the Tanghalang Huseng Batute, Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP).

Here are some performance photos from the Tanghalang Pilipino’s staging of Katsuri:
