As part of it’s 38th year anniversary, the UP Repertory Company presents MANILA IN 3D, a showcase of three plays exposing the inviting and the impoverish dimensions of the Philippines’ capital city.
Isang Dakilang Mamayan ng Republika is a one-act play by Rene Villanueva focused on an elderly turon and banana cue vendor’s forthright remarks on her urban yet impoverished surroundings, highlighting the circumstances that forced her to go through shocking acts of desperation due to poverty.
Helen of Camalaniugan is a one-act play about two soul mates separated by their dreams and distance. One wanting to stay with the promises of the city while the other promises to better the lives in their 4th class municipality.
And finally, Cruise My Herat, Hope to Die, Dava. Dava?! a UP Rep original comedy about a young urban theater company sailing to Iloilo to perform their socially relevant play. But will their goals reach its course when the ship gets bombed together with their identity.
Catch Manila in 3D on March 3 & 4, 7pm and March 5 & 7, 7pm, at the University of the Philippines Engineering Theater.
