The “Lost&Found Haven” is a (fictional) place that people go to whenever they feel lost, need answers, or do soul searching. Some went home victorious and some failed for some reasons.
Ellen went to the Haven to figure out what she really wanted to do in her life. Would she be able to find it or end up as lost as ever?
Ang Simulain ni Deokles
Written by: Julio Garcia & Kayehl Dedeles
Directed by: Rachelle Gimpes
This play is not a musical but a play with music. It follows the story of Gilas, Ora and Deokles, the Guardians of the afterlife, as they guide the souls to be reincarnated. Deokles reads the verdict given to the souls, whilst Gilas and Ora lead them ‘down’ or ‘up’. Each souls are given another chance to live again, but their existence depends on how they lived their past life; some comes back as wealthy elites, others as low as cockroaches. Every goodwill shared counted, every sin and malice accounted. Let your soul be weighed, and be guided by the Guardians of the afterlife. You now have a hint of what you were and what you will be.
