Adapted by Jerry Respeto as “Romulus D’Grayt” from the English translation of Gerhard Nellhaus, and directed by Peta artistic director Maribel Legarda, the play tells the story of Romulus, the last emperor of Rome, who, instead of ruling an already crumbling empire, is seen raising chickens in his farm.

Lights design is by Naomi Shoko Matsumoto, production design by Leo Abaya and music by Dodjie Fernandez.
