“Hello Philippines!”, a one-act musical, is a humorous take on call center culture. Team leader Tiffany tells five agents from his team that one of them is going to get axed. The twist, however, is that he will leave that decision to the five agents. So now, it’s up to ex-“tibak” Anton, clueless rich girl Berni, the slutty Toni, the “probinsyanong” Brichi and the overly religious Elsa to do whatever it takes to keep their jobs. Whatever it takes.
“Hello Philippines!” is viciously funny and holds nothing sacred as it skewers the call center lifestyle, a life cycle born out of fast money and desperation, shifting body clocks and too much coffee, beer and cigarettes. It attempts to put into perspective all the sacrifices one makes to stay in such an environment, although in an entertaining manner.
