On its 10th year, Writer's Bloc Inc. has selected 12 one act plays to be staged for the very first time. They will also re-stage 3 of the most loved plays from last year (Virgin LabFest 9 Revisited Set E). There will also be 3 staged readings and the showcase or culminating activity of the Virgin LabFest 8 Writing Fellowship Program. Plus, "Fragments" of some plays that would be performed randomly, not necessarily on stage.
I thank God for giving me the opportunity to be able to see these plays for almost 5 years now! And it was only through His grace that I was able to be part of last year's VLF 7 Writing Fellowship Program's showcase. Glory to God!
Here are the sets and plays that made it to the cut!
WHERE: Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP)
The Festival Plays would be staged at Tanghalang Huseng Batute. It's at the right side of the Box Office at the right entrance of CCP. Well, I think if you ask around, you'll be able to find your way.
The Staged Readings will be held at Bulwagang Amado Hernandez. Okay, it's a bit tricky to give directions on how to get there, and I'm directionally challenged. So, I guess, I'll put it this way: it's near the left entrance that's on the parking area. Ha! I hope you find your way around. It's a good opportunity to explore CCP.
WHEN: June 25 - July 6, 2014
The plays are scheduled to run at 3:00 PM or 8:00 PM beginning June 25. The Premiere Week is from June 25 - 29. The Encore Week is from July 2 - 6.
The Staged Readings and the Showcase will start at 6:00 PM on June 26, 28, July 3 and 6.
Fragments are always a surprise! ;)
Individual tickets of the sets are for Php 300.
If you plan to watch at least 4 sets, you can avail of the Virgin Pass for Php 900. Just choose between the Premiere and Encore weeks.
Or better yet, watch all 5 sets and get the Extra Virgin Pass for only Php 1,200. Again, pick either the Premiere week or the Encore week.
Weeeee! Thank God for this year's festival! I'm all set and excited! See you at the theater!
