Timeless and timely — Dr. Paul Dumol’s masterpiece “Ang Paglilitis kay Mang Serapio” celebrates its golden anniversary this year and will be staged in The Ruins, Poblacion by the Theatre Titas and Duende Theatre, in cooperation with Z Hostel and PLUD.
With a theme that is very relevant more than ever, the story — considered to be the Philippines’ first post-modernist play — follows the trial of Mang Serapio, an elderly beggar accused of harboring a child. This affects the communal income of the federacion, the association of beggars and as the story unfolds, the audience will see the flaws of the federacion’s justice system. Sounds all too familiar?
The Ruins provide the perfect ambience and stage for the play — dark, mysterious, captivating — and mirrors the gripping story of this masterpiece. Director Juan Ekis will place the audience as part of the courtroom together with the other characters of the play.
“Ang Paglilitis kay Mang Serapio” will happen at the Ruins on September 7, 8, 9, 14, 15 and 16, 2018, with performances at 8PM on all dates and 3PM matinées on Saturdays and Sundays.
