Dulaang UP to stage ‘Ang Dalagita’y ‘sang Bagay na Di-buo’ from Feb. 21

The play opens on 21 February and will run until 11 March (Wednesdays to Fridays at 7:00 pm; Saturdays and Sundays at 10:00 am and 3:00 pm) at the Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater, 2nd Floor Palma Hall, University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City.

In its 42nd Theatre Season, Dulaang UP brings to the Philippine stage Eimear McBride’s haunting novel A Girl is a Half-formed Thing (Goldsmith Prize Award 2013) billed as Ang Dalagita’y ‘sang Bagay Na Di-Buo in Filipino. Translated by Rody Vera’s, the play is based on Annie Ryan’s stage adaptation of the critically-acclaimed novel, originally staged by The Corn Exchange Theatre Company in 2014.

The play opens on 21 February and will run until 11 March (Wednesdays to Fridays at 7:00 pm; Saturdays and Sundays at 10:00 am and 3:00 pm) at the Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater, 2nd Floor Palma Hall, University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City.

Ang Dalagita’y ‘sang Bagay Na Di-buo tells in fragmented, poetic, and partly ambiguous language, the tragic life of a Girl, who has been repeatedly abused by her uncle, who loses her beloved brother, grapples with the wicked religiosity of her mother, and increasingly finds herself in that corner of her life where no option is left. Ang Dalgita’y ‘sang Bagay na Di-buo is a harrowing piece that lays bare in no delicate terms, the appalling iniquity of sexual abuse and power.

Skyzx Labastilla, Missy Maramara, and Opaline Santos alternate as the Girl in this Philippine premiere of the production. The performance is a rare opportunity to catch a powerful rendition of a gut-wrenching novel.

Ang Dalagita’y ‘sang Bagay Na Di-buo is also part of the University of the Philippines Diliman’s participation in the National Arts Month billed asKat(h)awan: Bodies, Society, Culture.  The Philippine premiere of A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing (Ang Dalagita’y ‘sang Bagay Na Di-buo) is directed by José Estrella and presented through the Wylie Agency (UK) Ltd.
