Tanghalang Pilipino 28th Theater Season Opener "Kleptomaniacs"

Tanghalang Pilipino 28th Theater Season exciting line up!!

KLEPTOMANIACS
Playwright: LAYETA BUCOY
Direction: TUXQS RUTAQUIO

Kleptomaniacs is a rap through musical highlighting the simple dreams of a poor young man who clings on purity of his love for his beloved to keep him afloat the murky ocean of poverty and dejection. Utilizing hip hop’s genres, Kleptomaniacs juxtaposes hope and anger, naiveté and cruelty, love and evil, against the backdrop of a community with its citizens trying to survive nature’s rage at the hands of the bereft of conscience kleptomaniacs.



It features lowly guy Tabo, a certified drifter whose life takes a dramatic change when he falls in love with pechay vendor Vicky. Wanting to prove himself worthy Vicky’s love, he turns his back to his “tambay” lifestyle and takes a job as a “padyak.” Since Tabo is borderline illiterate and not above petty crimes, Vicky’s mom Tisay doubts that Tabo will amount to anything even if he dies of industriousness. When Vicky gets pregnant, Tabo begs Tisay to allow him to marry Vicky. Everyone in Tabo’s circle of relatives and friends doubts Tabo’s capacity to raise a family except for his best friend Ngongo and his kid brother Buchoy whose unwavering faith in him inspires him to rise above his potentials. But then, an earthquake kills Ngongo and though Tabo holds on to his dying friend’s wish for him to prove that lowly people like them can triumph over poverty with decency and a strict moral compass, the disaster unmasks Tabo’s real enemies: kleptomaniacs who indiscriminately steal the simple dreams of the lowly and murder what little hope that shimmers in the pit of squalor.

Translation: ROLANDO TINIO

BALANGIGA (Sarswela)
Playwright: RODY VERA
Director: GARDY LABAD

More than a hundred years ago, in the town of Balangiga in Samar, 48 members of the 9th Infantry of U.S. Army were killed by the rebelling townspeople with the help of the Filipino Revolutionary movement. Described as the worst defeat of the U.S. Army during the Filipino-American war, the “massacre” in Balangiga was believed to have sparked American outrage that led to a far more terrible massacre of Filipinos in the whole of Samar, transforming the island into what history books have named as a Howling Wilderness. Part of the American retaliation was the seizing of the bells from the Balangiga church, touted by the American soldiers as trophies of the war against the rebels. Two of these bells are now displayed in former military base in Cheyenne, Wyoming. The sarswela is a reenactment of this significant historical event in the form of the sarswela. Integral, however to the romantic rendition of this story culminates in an impassioned appeal to bring back the bells to its rightful place in the town of Balangiga.

LARO SA PANAGINIP (Dangerous Liaisons)
Playwright: PIERRE CHODERIOS
Adaptation: ELMER GATCHALIAN
Director: TUXQS RUTAQUIO

JUEGO DE PELIGRO transports the story of Pierre Choderlos de Laclos’ classic epistolary novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses to 1890s Manila, a few years before the mass uprising led by Andres Bonifacio against the Spanish regime. Señor Victor and Señora Margarita are Spanish aristocrats and former lovers living in Intramuros, then an enclave of the elite in the country. As the power of the Spanish conquistadores in the colony began to wane in the last years of the 19th century, Señor Victor and Señora Margarita remain unshaken in their desire to engage in depravity through their vicious games of conquest. They both decide to prey on the young and virginal Señorita Cecilla, her indio lover Daniel, and the virtuous and recently married mestiza, Señora Teresa. Adapted for the stage by Palanca Awardee Elmer Gatchalian, JUEGO DE PELIGRO explores the themes of desire, class struggle, and conquest in one of the tumultuous periods in Philippine history.

Film actor, Iza Calzado plays the role made famous by Glenn Close in the film version.
