Fathers and Sons / Mga Ama, Mga Anak

 

UP Playwrights’ Theatre’s Fathers and Sons | Mga Ama, Mga Anak

By Nick Joaquin

Filipino Translation by Virgilio Almario and Jose Lacaba

Directed by Tony Mabesa

September 6 – 24

Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater, 2F, Palma Hall, UP Diliman

 

Set in the mid 70’s, this three-act play revolves around a day in the life of Zacarias Monzon, a man once known as the Caritela King. During the last few days of his life, he attempts to regain his reputation while reminiscing his past wealth, power, and success. The Joaquin classic dares to reveal the cycle of atrocities that linger in a patriarchal household as it resonates themes of identity, resistance, and acceptance.
