Pluwent: The Director's Cut
About the Event
Due to insistent public demand Pluwent will run for the second time on March 1, Saturday, 3 p.m. at the GSIS Theater.
The same quirky cast will bring Pluwent to life as Filipinos overseas with very remarkable contexts and predispositions in life some of which, one may find, all too familiar. Though loss (of someone loved) is a central theme here, tears will prove momentary if not scarce. After all, it is Filipino to take sadness with a grain of salt. *Cue for laughter*
The crowd that filled the GSIS Theater last February 11 can say “amen” to that. Until now, the overwhelming response to Pluwent expressed through social media sites (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) has taken Ryan Redillas (director and scriptwriter) by surprise. In a speech he gave at the end of the standing ovation Mr. Redillas fought back tears as he honored his father who inspired the teachings embedded in the play. He thanked everyone else.
Pluwent is a play not to be missed; not for the set; not for the script; not for the actors; and specially not for the sheer experience of it all.
