“Forever” is an old-fashioned melodrama set in the 1950s. This play is about love, maturity, and self-sacrifice. It is also about closure and healing, listening and accepting. It is a play about people who realize that letting go is greater, more sublime, than holding on.
“Call Me Flory” is a satire that pokes fun at social climbing and social climbers. It is a fun, wacky and hard-hitting piece on our secret desire to belong to high society.
The cast includes Roeder Camañag, Monica Llamas, Kimberly Diaz, Wilma Doesnt and Lailanie Ann Tejuco, Billy Parjan and Vincent Reyes Kuipers, Abner Delina, Troy de Guzman and Jude Sypongco.
