The Fourthwall Theater, the Philippine Normal University's drama group, is staging “Ang Tao,” a Filipino translation of the medieval morality play “Everyman,” on November 27, 2011, 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., at St. Scholastica’s College Little Theater, Manila.
The production is under the supervision of Prof. Pat Villafuerte, a multi-awarded writer and PNU professor.
The Fourthwall Theater, composed of teacher-artists manned by Drama Education and Theater Arts specialists of the PNU, has performed in various schools and universities and has rendered workshops to empower education through drama and theater arts. It's under the supervision of Mark Ryan Hernandez, who awarded Best Director by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts and the Department of Tourism in the 2004 Gawad Eksena Eskwela: Theater Festival held in Intramuros, Manila.
“Ang Tao” is a morality play and allegorical drama about how Christians should live and what a person must do to save his soul. A morality play is, in effect, a sermon that is acted out. The characters of a typical morality play include personifications of virtues (such as hope and charity), vices (such as pride and sloth), or other qualities, as well as personifications of objects (such as money) or activities (such as death or fellowship).
The show is tailor-made for all students taking up English, Literature, Social Studies, Filipino, Values Education, Music, Arts, Dance and Theater classes.
