Walang Kukurap By Layeta Bucoy

After a successful run of the 110-year-old sarswela of Severino Reyes’ ‘Walang Sugat’, Tanghalang Pilipino (TP), Cultural Center of the Philippines’ (CCP) resident theater company presents a highly-controversial play written by Quentin Tarantino’s female version onstage - Ms. Layeta Bucoy’s ‘Walang Kukurap.

According to TP’s artistic director, “The said straight play is a vibrantly new and highly experimental research-based contemporary production, which blurs the lines between art and life, fiction and reality as it vivisects the darkest parts of the Filipino soul. Holding no punches, it pounds away in search of answers, attacking the essence of corruption on multiple levels. It challenges philosophically, morally, and emotionally its audience. It asks not to just point fingers at the monsters outside but also stare honestly in the mirror, at one’s self, in homes.

“‘Walang Kukurap’ is a forceful reminder that if people do not take the challenge to better this world, then there is no need to die to experience hell.”

The same team that brought Dulaang UP’s shocking adaptation of William Shakespeare’s ‘Titus Andronicus’ is the artistic collaboration between the director-playwright tandem of Tuxqs Rutaquio and Layeta Bucoy together with TP’s homegrown talents - the Actors Company led by Jonathan Tadioan, Marco Viaña, Regina De Vera, Nicolo Magno, Ralph Mateo, Remus Villanueva, Doray Dayao, April Joy Iñigo, and Jovanni Cadag.

It will also feature veteran and competent theater actors who have crossed over to the mainstream arts, like Suzette Ranillo, Sherry Lara, Delphine Buencamino, Mymy Davao, Ding Navasero, Crispin Pineda, Paulo Cabanero, Pewee O’Hara, Nonoy Froilan, Lou Veloso, Sharmaine Suarez, and Ced Torrecarion. Another highlight of this second offering is the featuring of GLOC 9 on special dates of its run.
