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.

For tickets, contact (+63) 917 8040762 or 917 844 0520.

We believe that just because one is popular, doesn't mean it merits that popularity. There are many at the fringes also meriting attention, though do not have the means to means/know-how to be so. And so here we are, celebrating everything... artistic life from the fringes.
