UP Repertory Company presents twinbill

The UP Repertory Company presents two original Filipino one-act plays, “Hello Philippines” and “Titser's Act,” on February 13, 15, 20 (3p.m. and 6 p.m.) at the College of Engineering Theater, UP Diliman.

Both plays are written by Albert Cruz and directed by Albert Cruz, Dax Carnay and Albert Konrad de Luna.

“Hello Philippines,” a one-act musical, is a humorous take on call center culture, an attempt to 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 tries to put into perspective all the sacrifices one makes to stay in such an environment, albeit in an entertaining manner.

“Titser's Act,” set in a humble urban precinct poll a day before the 2010 national polls, centers around three public school teachers and their colorful commentaries on election-related issues, from semi-electronic polls to mass killings. The play puts viewers in the shoes of the one person who shoulders the stress and sacrifice of ensuring working elections in this country--the teachers.

The cast includes, for “Hello Philippines,” Diana Marie Ampuan, Deng Ponce, Marvin Salazar, Kristel Anne Perlas, Astrid Agbayani, Manuel Mesina III, Carla Jill Masalonga; and for “Titser's Act,” Dax Carnay, Albert Cruz and Albert Konrad de Luna.
