Tanghalang Pilipino, the resident theater company of the Cultural Center of the Philippines continues its silver anniversary with will Tatlong Tabing: Three Plays by Tony Perez, September 30 to October 23 2011 at the CCP Tanghalang Huseng Batute.

“As part of the celebration, an exhibit of Tony Perez’s paintings will be mounted during the entire run of the production,” says a CCP press announcement. The press release breaks down the trilogy as follows:

Sierra Lakes is a tension-filled usap-usapan (dramatic conversation) that explores issues among four people caught in a complicated web of love and desire. It will be directed by Tess Jamias, an alumna of the TP actors company.

Bombita is a black comedy which questions the blind obedience and subservience behaviour of young rookies in the military. Funny, but almost in a pathetic way, it reveals the emotional and intellectual short-comings of our men in uniform. It will be directed by Dennis Marasigan, TP’s former Artistic Director.

Nobyembre, Noong Akala Ko’y Mahal Kita, a case study of the absence of love in an average, middle-class male in contemporary Philippine society, is part of the multi-awarded playwright’s thought-provoking trilogy about love, friendship and companionship, and their consequences in our lives. It will be directed by Tuxqs Rutaquio, one of today’s most sought-after theater directors.

“Tony Perez, who has spent over two decades eloquently dissecting the Filipino psyche, is an important playwright in contemporary Philippine drama. A prolific playwright 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. Dissecting the Filipino psyche, his plays deal with adult themes such as intense love, betrayal, separation, compassion, poverty, birth and death.”
