Teatro Marikeno Restages ANG PAGLILITIS NI MANG SERAPIO, 9/24-10/1
Rizal, Philippines--Formed on September 1, 2001, Teatro Marikeño is a community-based theater and dance company. The group aims to encourage the artistic and practical development of its members through various workshops, seminars, and theatrical productions--enhancing their talents and skills both on and off stage.
In celebration of its 16th founding anniversary, Teatro Marikeño will restage "Ang Paglilitis Ni Mang Serapio," written by Filipino playwright Paul Dumol, on September 24 (Sunday), September 30 (Saturday), and October 1 (Sunday) at the theater group's studio (325 F. Manalo St., Balanti, San Isidro, Cainta, Rizal) at 7 p.m.
The theater company's officers Kevin John Reyes, production manager, Alvin Joseph Veneracion, stage and movement director, and Floriza Mejia-Antonio, artistic director, lead this restaging of the modernist drama.
The play follows the story of an old beggar, Mang Serapio, who carries around a doll and uses it to attract more attention, hence more alms. Once the authorities are alerted on Mang Serapio's modus operandi, he appears in a mock trial, which would eventually lead to a bloody outcome.
