The must see Authorial Intent.

Character A and B of Itamar Moses' Authorial Intent.
A very unconventional play happens last June 24, 2018 at the Gonzaga Fine Arts Theater inside Ateneo De Manila University in Quezon City.  it’s the staging of “Authorial Intent “by playwright Itamar Moses, that tell a story of a couple who move in a condominium, and then suddenly they fell out of love or something that became challenge to the struggling couple, and the way they deal, discuss and argue is really beyond horizon.  Plus the wit and comedy of all will make you wonder, it is not easy to catch up but through the performances progress, story is just simple and happy at the end.

What I love most in Authorial Intent is the humor and the greatness of how excellence the actors are, plus the set-up is so complex and the feeling of understanding the two characters is awesome, feels like they take you to New York or first world thing.
