UPLB arts troupe to stage Synge's Riders to the Sea/Sa Sinapupunan ng Laot

The UPLB Samahan sa Sining (SAMASINING), the laboratory arm of the Department of Humanities, is staging John Millington Synge’s “Riders to the Sea/Sa Sinapupunan ng Laot,” a two-part adaptation by Prof. Emmanuel V. Dumlao, under the direction of Prof. Dennis D. Gupa.

The show runs September 16 and 17 (7 p.m.), September 18 (3 p.m. and 7 p.m.) and September 19 and 20 (10 a.m. and 3 p.m.)

This production showcases a presentation of two different cultures--Irish and Filipino, back to back in one show. “Riders to the Sea” is a period play set in an isolated island in Ireland. Meanwhile, the Filipino translation called “Sa Sinapupunan ng Laot” is set in Alabat, Quezon. The play revolves around a living mystery, a family’s tragedy and the faith and strength of a mother despite her desolate situation.

Through the years, SAMASINING, along with the department's Theater Communication classes, has taken the lead in producing plays of high quality that enhance the students’ study of and appreciation for literature, the humanities, the social sciences, and other courses at the secondary and collegiate levels.

Tickets are at P200 each. For ticket reservations, call Camille Custodio 0917-9789018.
