Do you like watching plays? Read on! Here’s an interesting play from the UP Playwrights’ Theater coming this November 21. If you like colorful creatures from Philippine folk literature and mythology, you can most certainly enjoy “Umaaraw, Umuulan Kinakasal ang Tikbalang.” The play is adapted from Gilda Cordero-Fernando’s children’s short story The Magic Circle, written by Rody Vera and directed by José Estrella. Aside from a crash course on Philippine folklore, the play is also a timely reminder of the urgency of caring for the environment and that all creatures big or small, whether from this world or another, are deserving of our respect and compassion.
The play runs from November 21 to December 9, 2012 at the Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater, University of the Philippines, Diliman. For ticket inquiries, contact Sam Clarin or Camille Guevara at the DUP Office at 926-1349, 981-8500 local 2449 or 433-7840.
