CCP Closes Women's Month through A Soft Launch Of The Special Issue Of Vlf Anthology By Women Playwrights

THE Cultural Center of the Philippines, through its Intertextual Division, will have a soft launch of the special anthology of the Virgin Lab Festival fully staged plays on March 31, 2021, 2pm at the CCP and CCP Intertextual Division Facebook Pages as part of the Center’s celebration of National Women’s Month.

Entitled “ELEMENTAL: MGA BABAENG MANDUDULA AT MGA ELEMENTO NG DRAMA,” the said e-book will be formally launched online likewise during this year’s Virgin Labfest which will be held from June 14 to July 6, 2021.  The e-book can be downloaded for free.

The plays selected for this volume were chosen from the works by women that were staged from various editions of the Virgin Labfest, the annual theater festival that provides a venue for the emerging and established Filipino playwrights to present their unpublished, unstaged, untested and untried works to the theater-going public.  The works by women were selected to serve as samples to help define and explain the elements of a play.  The e-book can also be considered as a manual in writing for theater.

Edited by veteran playwright Ms. Layeta Bucoy, the special anthology features the works of the following playwrights: Clarissa Estuar (Ang Mamanugangin Ni Rez); Debbie Ann Tan (Fate's Line, Mga Babaeng Toobright, Dragon's Breath); Dominique La Victoria (Chipline); Eliza Victoria (Marte, Ang Bahay sa Gitna ng Kawalan); Herlyn Alegre (Bahay Bahayan, Tagu-Taguan and Huling-Huli); Isa Borlaza (Sa Package Counter); Joyce Ann Icayan (Last Ten Minutes); Lani Montreal (Looking for Darna and Sister-Out-Law), Layeta Bucoy (Ang Anak ni Gloria); Liza Magtoto (Paigan and Anonymous);  Sheilfa Alojamiento (Boy-Gel ang Gelpren ni Mommy), and Mixkaela Villalon (High Stakes) among others.
