PETA, which ends its 50th season with 'NIGHT, MOTHER, is the first professional theater company in the Philippines to produce this dark comedy, adapted by Ian Lomongo and directed by Melvin Lee.

Despite the fact the play was written and premiered in the '80s, 'NIGHT, MOTHER remains relevant today because of its universal themes of familial relationships, alienation, and loneliness.

"It doesn't talk about facts or give advice or resolution to mental health problems. It doesn't directly discuss suicide, depression, isolation, and family relationship problems, but it's a play that circles around them, with characters who go through them. It's a conversation of a trapped girl, who finds no other exit but to take her own life, with her mother," says Janine Angela Martinez, BroadwayWorld.

"In that conversation, the mother and daughter reveal various issues they have with themselves, with other people, and their relationship with each other. The play itself is like a suicide note turned into a conversation with that person--a conversation that people should have had, but never had."

Dang Manlapaz, the show's promoter for the March 3 matinee, says, "PETA has been one of the pioneers in the industry, which is not only producing quality shows but also creatively empowering Filipinos to step up and drive positive social change.

"Also, PETA has several adopted communities, which have been beneficiaries of a portion of the company's revenues. So, you get to support the local theater industry and the community at the same time when you come out and watch a PETA production."
