The Egg Theater Co and the PARC Foundation and Pineapple Lab present “Moliere PMS”, a fusion of three Moliere play adaptations: Praning (The Imaginary Invalid), Maniacal (The Learned Ladies), and Schism (The Misanthrope).
This will run October 1 and 2 at PARC Foundation, 494 Lt. Artiaga St., San Juan City; and at Pineapple Lab, 6071 Palma Street, Rockwell on October 7-9 and October 14-16.
Transporting Moliere’s French Society to an imagined theater world that serves as a microcosm of Philippine society, the fusion of the three plays is a satirical comedy that pokes a searing look at the foibles and travails of theater artists divided and polarized by the ills of hypocrisy and pretentiousness.
Adapted and directed by Palanca award-winning playwright, George de Jesus III, the three plays have all been separately staged before: Praning in 2012 as a thesis production of Technical Theater and Production Design Program of the School for Design and Arts of the DLSU College of Saint Benilde; Maniacal and Schism by the Egg Theater Co as part of the Fringe Manila Festival in 2015 and 2016, respectively.
