Brief synopsis of your chosen material: This play weaves together the stories of a disparate group of Filipinos living in Manila in the twilight years of the Marcos regime. The influences of colonization on the Philippines mean that though the Marcos regime is on its way out in 1985, we wonder whether this cycle will roll on into eternity.
Brief quote from the work: “The Philippines spent four hundred years in a Spanish convent – and fifty years in Hollywood!”
