This summer, The UP Repertory Company will take you in on a party with ravaged personas lingering in the darkness behind church doors and beyond the forests. No other party this summer will drive you as wild as KARITAS AT DAMASO x ISANG MAGSASAKA, an all-new twinbill production featuring the works of two prolific playwrights from the UP College of Arts and Letters. Professors Reuel Aguila and U.Z. Eliserio, and their amusing take on Philippine culture and history: U.Z. Eliserio’s
KARITAS AT DAMASO is a musical satire about fanaticism in four devout Catholics – a priest, two nuns, and a lady – who unravel certain experiences in sin and sex in an action-filled battle of faith and wits.
ISANG MAGSASAKA by Reuel Aguila is a Palanca-award winning play that tells one violent incident through three different narratives, a testament that reality is indeed painted in multicolor and shades of gray. In its 43rd Year of Service to Philippine Theater, we bring you a musical celebration of the lives of the common woman and man that aims to liberate minds, question the authorities, and rock the system.
Under the direction of two of its prized alumni, Dax Carnay and Eshei Mesina, the UP Repertory Company takes you into these two tales of struggle in an entertaining romp of music, wit and tragedy – a summer party you’ll never forget! The party will run at the Bulwagang Tandang Sora of the CSWCD, UP Diliman on the following dates: April 24 & 26 (7pm) and on April 25, 27 and May 1 (3pm & 7pm).
Ticket prices are at P140 for students and P200 for regular audience. For inquiries, please contact Mara at 09178528950.
