Dramatis Personae mounts stage adaptation of 2005 film The Exorcism of Emily Rose

Dramatis Personae and La Consolacion College Manila’s Center for Theater Education/Training and Digital Cinema present the stage adaptation of the film "The Exorcism of Emily Rose," opening Sept. 11, with two matinees, 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., at Mother Consuelo Barcelo Theater, La Consolacion College Mendiola, Manila.

Based on a true story that happened in a small town in Germany, "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" explores the universal clash between medical science and religion. An exorcist priest is accused of negligent homicide by the district attorney for allowing the death of Emily while in the middle of an exorcism. A topnotch agnostic lawyer sets out to defend the priest. The lives of three people will intersect and change forever in this gripping drama about spiritual awakening and redemption.

Directed by Lito Casaje, the play features Jao Mapa, Suzette Ranillo, Alfonso Deza, Joel Caballero, Shyr Valdez, Earl Ignacio, Danny Magisa, Juno Parungao, Marlon Hofer and Angel Rose Reyes, and introducing Tricia Perez as Emily Rose.

Dramatis personae did in the past The Hunchback of NotreDame. It was not a good production. Many schools complained that the production's quality is way below than expected. One of the schools actually complained about it. Another point is that they did not pay royalty then to Disney. I really doubt that Dramatis paid royalty for this prod as well. I think even though it is a "stage adaptation", the proper fees and rights should be paid. Wag namang ganyan, sana matuto naman ang mga directors natin about this. Sa TV ganon din, many writers are copying the works of novelists and claiming it as their own (example: Glass Castle na "inadapt" and ginawa with Sarah Geronimo)..Wag namang ganyan...
