About the Event

Mga Ama, Mga Anak (Fathers and Sons) is a play in three-acts written by Nick Joaquin in 1976. The original text in English was published in Manila by National Book Store Inc, in 1979. This is based on his short story “Three Generations.”

This Filipino translation of Nick Joaquin’s Fathers and Sons dramatizes the conflicts between generations, particularly the father and sons. It tells the conflicts of Zacarias Monzon who used to be powerful in his town.

The story revolves from the time he was ill and wheelchair bound, with conflicts in his family still unresolved, until he realizes the cruelty and inadequacies in this family before he dies.
