The Dressing Room
until November 25 (Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater)

After a successful run in 2016, Dulaang Unibersidad ng Pilipinas restages its critically-acclaimed production, “The Dressing Room: That Which Flows Away Ultimately Becomes Nostalgia” and its Filipino translation, “Ang Dressing Room: Kung Saan Lubusang Pangungulila ang Dulot ng Agos ng Panahon.”

In a time of reflection and recovery, the play echoes the aftermath of World War II in Japan in an ironically witty and melancholic way. The story follows the lives of four actresses preparing backstage while waiting for their cue to enter onstage. These actresses take turns telling their stories, each expressing an obsessive desire to perform the lead role, which ignites a comic yet dramatic narrative about shared memories that reveal their aspirations and frustrations.

The play runs from November 7 until 25 with an all-female cast (English) on 7, 8, 9 (7PM), 10, 11 (10AM AND 3PM), 21, 23 (7PM) 24 (3PM), 25 (10AM) and an all-male cast (Filipino) on 13, 14, 15, 16 (7PM),17, 18 (10AM AND 3PM), 22 (7PM), 24 (10AM), 25 (3PM) at the Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater, 2nd floor, Palma Hall, U.P. Diliman.
