Theatre II Paglilitis ni Mang Serapio

    This is a re-run production by ROC ( Rock Opera Company), a theatre organization in the University of Asia and the Pacific.

    And Paglilitis ni Mang Serapio ( " The Trial of Mang Serapio, 1968") was written by Paul Dumol. He is a Philippine playwright and educator and is presently the Chairman of the Philippine Center for Civic Education and Democracy. He is currently a professor and the University of Asia and the Pacific.

    His play is considered by some as the first Filipino Modernist play. He is also the youngest Palanca awardee.

    The story of revolves around the Federacion, a syndicate of beggars, thieves and the like, and their trial upon a Mang Serapio. The trial is held because he had broken rules that are considered grave to the Federacion, and so that the others would not follow his example, punishments are presented for his crime.

    This is the 3rd time ROC is presenting Ang Paglilitis ni Mang Serapio.

    The stage was set-up in an arena type, so as to simulate a trial session. It's a bit cramped and and dark, but that becomes hard to notice when the performance starts. I suggest instead of anticipating the play , it would be much better if one is to just watch and absorb everything. There is a lot going on so getting into it is a must so that you will be able to understand the story. At the end of it all, it makes you think about things. It's good that it makes you think.

    Here are some shots taken from the performance.
