Darrel Gamotin introduced each cast member with personal stories – one even leading all the way back to high school for Oh Comely.
In her introduction for her new musical Icosagon Dreams, Flerida Peña got a laugh from audiences when referencing Day Time TV’s infamous icosagon aka the big wheel from the Price is Right!
Jo SiMalaya Alcampo delighted audiences with her singing plants and visuals of her Aswang character represented through shadow puppetry for Hillot Means Healer.
And finally, Meesha Albano informed the audience that the excerpts about to be presented and are part of her larger play Transit Diaries to be seen this summer in the Toronto Fringe Festival.
Of course the audience played a large part in this development celebration. Each night the Playwrights asked 3-4 questions pertaining to their play and received feedback from the audience. The feedback provided is intended to support the Playwrights as they enter their next phase of writing.
