The folk epic tells the story of Lam-Ang and his search for his father. After that quest, he goes on to court a beautiful maiden from another town, Kannoyan. The story itself varies, and even in the northern region of the Philippines, there are about 10-20 versions of the story. The most popular transcription of the oral literature is that of Pedro Bukaneg, but as it was documented during the Spanish colonization, there is a reason to believe that his account contained biases. TPs staging of Lam-Ang is a reimagined version that aims to tell the story as truthfully as possible.
