Tanghalang Pilipino presents "Tatlong Tabing: Three Plays by Tony Perez," at CCP's Tanghalang Huseng Batute from September 30 to October 23, 2011.
The three plays are "Sierra Lakes," "Bombita" and "Nobyembre, Noong Akala Ko Mahal Kita," directed, respectively, by Tess Jamias, Dennis Marasigan and Tuxqs Rutaquio.
Tony Perez is an important playwright in contemporary Philippine drama. A prolific artist with several volumes of published works, his plays deal with adult themes such as intense love, betrayal, separation, compassion, poverty, hunger, marriage, birth, and death. This trilogy traces his artistic development as a playwright.
"Sierra Lakes" is a tension-filled play that explores issues among four people caught in a complicated web of love and desire. The cast includes Bodie Cruz, Adrienne Vergara, Rayna Reyes, Dan Jarden de Guzman and Regina de Vera.
"Bombita" is a black comedy which questions the blind obedience and subservient behavior of young rookies in the military. Funny, but almost in a pathetic way, it reveals the emotional and intellectual shortcomings of our men in uniform. Cast includes Acey Aguilar, Jelson Bay, Riki Benedicto, Martha Comia, Regina de Vera, Anthony Falcon, Russell Legaspi, Gino Ramirez, Jonathan Tadioan and Marco Viana.
"Nobyembre, Noong Akala Ko Mahal Kita" is a psychological drama, the second play in Perez's thought-provoking trilogy about love, friendship and companionship, and their consequences in our lives ("Oktubre, Noong Tayo’y Nagmamahalan Pa" is the first and "Saan Ba Tayo Ihahatid ng Disyembre?" concludes the trilogy. Cast includes Mayen Estañero, Majorie Lorico and Jonathan Tadioan.
