After over a decade, Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) returns to their original home, the Rajah Sulayman Theater in Intramuros, on November 29 to December 1.
In celebration of the local production company’s 50th year, they will restage Bertolt Brecht’s Ang Buhay ni Galileo directed by Rody Vera. The critically-acclaimed play was considered as one of PETA’s most exciting productions and was believed to be especially unforgettable because of the excellent costume design.
The Rajah Sulayman Theater in Fort Santiago was designed and conceptualized by PETA’s founder Cecile Guidote-Alvarez. It served as the venue for PETA plays from the theater company’s foundation until the 1990s.
Through the years, PETA has been one of the top and most prolific theater organizations in the country. Some of their most remarkable and famous plays are: Bayaning Huwad, Larawan, May-i, May-i, Hanggang Dito na Lamang at Maraming Salamat, Juan Tamban, Pilipinas Circa 1907, Ang Buhay ni Galileo, Macbeth, Canuplin, Macliing, Minsa’y Isang Gamu-Gamo, Ang Paglalakbay ni Radya Mangandiri, 1896.
Ang Buhay ni Galileo runs from November 29 to December 1 at the Rajah Sulayman Theater, Fort Santiago, Intramuros, Manila. Tickets are available through Ticketworld for P600.
