DUP CELEBRATES MABINI SESQUICENTENNIAL THROUGH NEW QUINTOS PLAY ANG HULING LAGDA NI APOLINARIO MABINI
The troika which is part of the hugely successful musical Ang Nawalang Kapatid– Dexter M. Santos (director), Floy Quintos (playwright), and Krina Cayabyab (music director) collaborate once more in a play celebrating the sublime paralytic’s 150th birth anniversary. Ang Huling Lagda ni Apolinario Mabini chronicles the last days of Apolinario Mabini’s exile in Guam and explores the conditions which spurred him to return to his homeland.
This musical in one act is, perhaps, the most significant contribution of the local theatre scene to the celebration of the sesquicentennial of Apolinario Mabini. While the musical explores the private pain of a hero forced to swear allegiance to the USA, Ang Huling Lagda ni Apolinario Mabini also instills a new pride and importance in his greatest work- the True Decalogue. The musical also allows audiences to familiarize themselves with the value of Mabini’s greatest opus and strengthen our sense of duty to our country.
The cast is topbilled by veteran stage actors Roeder Camañag, Leo Rialp, Jean Judith Javier, Banaue Miclat, Al Gaimatan and Nazer Salcedo. An ensemble of promising actors comprise the formidable supporting cast- Ralph Oliva, Chase Salazar, Adrian Reyes, Arion Sanchez, Bym Buhain, Edmundo Abad, Jr., Ralph Perez, Ross Pesigan, Roco Sanchez, Rence Aviles, Jon Abella, and Vincent Pajara.
Ang Huling Lagda ni Apolinario Mabini runs from October 1 to 19, 2014 at the Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater, 2nd floor Palma Hall, University of the Philippines Diliman.
